Jefferson Town Homes project could break ground by October


Richmond BizSense has the word on the latest planned for Jefferson Town Homes:

Developer Ron Hunt and his company Genesis Homes are building a 151-unit, 173,000-square-foot apartment complex at Cedar and 19th streets, according to a development plan submitted last week to the city. The four-story development sits on 3.5 acres and will be known as Cedar Street Apartments. The existing Jefferson Town Homes will be torn down to make way for the new Genesis project.

A version of this project has been in the works since at least 2010. The apartments to be torn down and replaced are the town homes south of Venable Street.

The images above are from some of the plan sheets that were presented to Planning and Development Review PDF).

This isn’t perfect, but the neighborhood association did its best to shape the outcome with the tools we had.

He also agreed to retain, but limit, the number of subsidized units to less than 20 percent. The remainder will be market rate. In addition, he profferred masonry and cementitious siding, screening of surface parking, street trees, 30 bike racks, and a community meeting space open to the neighborhood. This… Read more »

So they split the complex in two? And the ones facing Venable will still stand?
