Yes, that’s a sad face in the title. One of the most beautiful pieces of un-developed land is now for sale in Williamsburg.
The state of Virginia is selling 419 surplus acres of property at Eastern State Hospital. The property is immediately adjacent to New Town, which is a 365 acres, very successful, mixed use project that has been developed over the last 12 years.
The site has been surplused by the Commonwealth of Virginia. In 2008 a group of stakeholders (not endorsed by the Commonwealth) in the region founded a conceptual plan by Urban Design Associates for this site. The Commonwealth of Virginia has several agencies, including a DMV Customer Service Center, in the region that may require new office space as part of the
development of this project.
CB Richard Ellis of Virginia, Inc. is marketing the surplus property on behalf of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Anybody want to chip in to keep it from being developed ?
