PURPOSE:  To amend and reordain Ord. No. 80-260-81-41, adopted Mar. 9, 1981, as previously amended by Ord. Nos. 81-152-138, adopted August 24, 1981, 84-110-83, adopted May 29, 1984, 89-318-295, adopted Nov. 13, 1989, 2006-26-52, adopted Feb. 27, 2006, 2006-260-263, adopted Oct. 23, 2006, 2012-163-164, adopted October 8, 2012, and Ord. No. 2017-169, adopted September 25, 2017, to amend the use of the parcel identified as Tax Map # C005-077/6003 to allow for an expansion of multi-family development known as “Beaufont Towers” located on the parcel identified as Tax Map # C005-0879/012.

 

REASON:  The applicant has requested the permitted uses for the Beaufont Oaks Community Unit Plan be amended to remove the designation of “Reserved for Future Extension” at 400 Hioaks to allow for the expansion of the development known as “Beaufont Towers that is presently located completely within the property at 350 Hioaks Road.”

 

RECOMMENDATION:  In accordance with the requirements of the City Charter and the Zoning Ordinance, the City Planning Commission will review this request and make a recommendation to City Council. This item will be scheduled for consideration by the Commission at its March 7, 2022, meeting. A letter outlining the Commission’s recommendation will be forwarded to City Council following that meeting.

 

BACKGROUND:  The subject properties, known as 350 and 400 Hioaks Road, are a component of the Beaufont Oaks Community Unit Plan. The underlying zoning of the subject property is R 3 (Single Family Residential). The subject properties are a combined 6.2 acres. 350 Hioaks Road is currently with an age-restricted multi-family development that also includes assisted living and memory care facilities.  400 Hioaks Road is currently unimproved.  The subject property is located in the Hioaks neighborhood of the Midlothian planning district.

 

The multi-family development at 350 Hioaks Road is proposing to add a building addition, outdoor seating and parking area that requires expansion into 400 Hioaks Road.

 

Richmond 300 recommends a future land use of “Destination Mixed Use” for the property.  The primary uses envisioned for Destination Mixed Use are retail/office/personal service, multi-family residential, cultural, and open space.  Secondary uses are institutional and government.  The development style envisioned is higher density, transit oriented on vacant or underutilized sites.  New development should be urban in form, may be of larger scale than the existing context, and should pay special attention to the historic character of the existing context.  Development should enhance the public realm and create a sense of place, with many vertically mixed use buildings.  A gridded street pattern should be continued or introduced to increase connectivity.  Ground floor uses are envisioned to engage with and enliven the street through windows, doors, storefronts and other features that allow transparency and interaction between building and street.  The recommended intensity is high with new buildings typically a minimum of five stories.  Pedestrian, bicycle and transit access must be prioritized.

 

The property is also within the Chippenham Hospital National/Regional Node.  This node is envisioned as continuing to provide high quality jobs associated with the hospital and medical office related uses.  Additionally, the older multi-family residential communities can be redeveloped into high density, mixed use neighborhoods.  The redesign of these communities should emphasize walkable, well connected communities with well-designed buildings, a street grid, sidewalks, and street trees.  The growth potential for the area is medium  the older low density, multi-family developments can be redeveloped with a mix of uses, higher residential densities and a mix of housing types. The portions of Jahnke Road and Hioaks Road that abut the property are each designated as a “Major Mixed use Street” and the portion of Jahnke Road that abuts the property is designated as a “Great Street” on the Great Streets and Street Typologies Map.

 

Chippenham Hospital and complementary medical office buildings are located directly to the north of the subject property.  Chippenham Parkway is located directly to the west.  An assisted living facility is located directly to the south, and multi-family dwellings are located to the east.
