Hirschler land use and zoning partner Jim Theobald scored another win for client Dominion Realty Partners. On Tuesday, August 18, Jim successfully lobbied the Chesterfield Planning Commission for approval of Phase II of DPR’s Boulders Lakeside Apartments project. The second phase of the project includes an additional 220 apartments, a clubhouse, pool, trails and open spaces.
Chesterfield planning staff had recommended denying the rezoning request for the second phase of the proposal, saying that they had safety concerns because the proposal does not call for having at least two public road access points into the new community, a typical zoning requirement for multifamily communities with more than 200 units. Jim was able to convince the Commission that a second gated access provides an adequate way for emergency responders to access the apartment community.
Dominion Realty Partners has developed other multifamily projects in the region, including the Residences at the John Marshall in downtown Richmond as well as Manchester Place (now known as Link Apartments) in South Richmond.
