Virginia Center Commons Design Charrette

Project Status: Study


Magisterial District:   Fairfield  


HELP PLAN YOUR COMMUNITY’S FUTURE!

 

WHAT IS A CHARRETTE?  A charrette is an intensive planning session where citizens, designers and others collaborate on a vision for development.  It provides a forum for ideas and offers the unique advantage of giving immediate feedback to the designers.  More importantly, it allows everyone who participates to be a mutual author of the plan.  You can explore previous charrettes conducted by the county by following this link:  Public Design Charrettes webpage

WHAT IS THE STUDY AREA?  The study area generally includes Virginia Center Commons mall and surrounding properties east of Brook Road.  A map of the area is linked below. 

HOW DID THE COMMUNITY PARTICIPATE?  There were multiple opportunities for the public to contribute:

    Location: Virginia Center Commons Mall – 10101 Brook Road, Glen Allen – Food Court Entrance

    Dozens of interested residents stopped in the studio to talk with the design team to provide input as the plan evolved..  This was a unique opportunity to provide feedback as the initial plan ideas were developed.
