Two of our engineering projects are in the news this month as RVA development continues. Zannino Engineering is working with Blackwood Development Company (BDC) on the Winterfield Crossing project in Chesterfield. BDC was worked for nearly three decades to build and develop commercial properties in Central Virginia as well as the Tidewater area.
Proposed for Winterfield Crossing is a mixed-use development located on the north side of Midlothian Turnpike; west of Winterfield Road. It is a village-like community with restaurants, professional offices, specialty retail shops and centrally-located apartments planned in a setting with pedestrian-friendly streets. According to a Richmond Bizsense article, last year the German grocery chain Aldi entered a contract to purchase 2 acres for a store in the Winterfield Crossing development. Zannino is providing engineering services for the development project.
RVA development continues south of the James River. Also in the news is a $40 million project planned along the Manchester riverfront. Brickhaus Partners filed preliminary plans with the city’s planning division in late June for its RiverHaus development (Source: Richmond Bizsense). This development includes a plan for a mix of townhomes and apartments on a 2.2-acre tract on the west side of Cowardin Avenue; southern end of the Robert E. Lee bridge. To date, Zannino Engineering has been retained to perform test borings prior to building construction.
Brickhaus is an international real estate development company out of Ohio. The company is known for their obligation to be socially and environmentally responsible. They focus on behaviors and practices that benefit the environment and community, which is reflected through thoughtful design and the pursuit of sustainable building methods. Brickhaus communities are strategically placed in walk-able neighborhoods that encourage human connectivity and embrace the region’s greatest natural resources.
