The former site of Cloverleaf Mall in Chesterfield is making way for more residents with Element at Stonebridge. Three apartment buildings with 400 units are now complete in the multi-phased project.
A total of 456,204 square feet, each courtyard-style building measures more than 145,000 square feet featuring studio apartments and one- and two-bedroom units.
“There were many challenges related to the sheer size of the buildings. Things like fire ratings of walls/doors, draftstopping, and spray applied fireproofing all had more challenging details than a traditional breezeway apartment,” explained Josh Nay, project manager. “The KBS team worked closely with Chesterfield county inspectors and Boyd homes to ensure these details were properly addressed.”
The units have open floor plans with large living space, complete with nine-foot, ten-foot and 14-foot ceilings. All units are equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and washers and dryers. Most units have patios or Juliet-style balconies. The apartment units are located within a few feet of the retail stores and restaurants.
“We at Boyd Homes are fortunate to be a part of such growth in this area of Chesterfield County,” said Stephanie Drake, marketing manager of Boyd Homes. “The residents of Element at Stonebridge are able to see first-hand the addition of more shops and restaurants in Stonebridge Shopping Center and are right next door to the new Richmond Volleyball Club. Being just steps away adds to the new luxury lifestyle we are striving to provide. We appreciate the hard work and expertise of KBS in working with us to build such great new place to live.”
Amenities include courtyard spaces, a salt-water pool, an outdoor kitchen area with a bar and grills, a firepit with seating and a covered outdoor lounge complete with a television and outdoor games. The facility has a fitness room and a multi-purpose room off the main courtyard with a large clubroom that opens to the outdoor lounge.
After being vacant for three years, Cloverleaf Mall was demolished in 2011 driving plans to revitalize Chesterfield’s Midlothian Turnpike corridor with a mixed-use development of residential, retail and green space.
