- 351 residential units (with 30% affordable units)
- 1 story grocery store (20,000 sq ft)
- Restaurant space (15,000 sq ft)
- 745 parking spaces
The development would encompass the land sold by the BeltLine as well as land on Monroe and Cresthill that is zoned single-family and has a land use designation of single-family.

VHCA is closely monitoring this project and is working with all interested stakeholders to insist that any proposed development reflect the concerns and input of Virginia-Highland and surrounding neighborhoods. These efforts are being coordinated through VHCA’s Planning Committee (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) and will involve not only members of the VHCA Planning Committee, but input and guidance from both the professional planner and the land-use attorney who have advised VHCA over the years. We will continue to provide updates as things evolve and progress.
