On Monday, November 19, Hirschler partner Jeff Geiger successfully lobbied the Richmond City Planning Commission for an amendment to the Stony Point Community Unit Plan, paving the way for a development that’s been years in the making. Approved by a unanimous vote, the amendment will allow Jeff’s client, Dominion Diversified Real Estate Group, to proceed with Stony Point Landing, a 59-unit townhome development that would fill about 5 acres at 9230 Forest Hill Ave., just north of the Stony Point Shopping Center. The project will include a network of sidewalks connecting with pedestrian paths leading out to Forest Hill Avenue and include amenities such as a pond, playground and bench swings.
Commenting on the project, Fourth District Councilwoman Kristen Larson stated, “I thought the developer did a good job of holding community meetings, listening to the feedback and modifying their plans based on that feedback,” Larson said. “I think it blends in with the area.”
