Princess Anne Commons Growth

7 posts in this topic

While the plan for Princess Anne Commons has been out for some time, the southern section of Virginia Beach is really gearing up with development as of late. While still suburban in nature, it has taken a turn towards more vertical development and is making strides towards the campus feel that is desired.Both the Princess Anne Road expansion and Nimmo Parkway extension have been completed, increasing accessibility. Currently, the YMCA, CHKD, and a senior living facility called the Crossings at Independence are under construction. In addition to this, Spence Crossing is building out its neighborhood plan, with completed apartments, a mix of townhouses and condos, as well as retail. Adjacent to the courthouse, there are multiple neighborhood developments in the works, as well as an apartment community behind the Courthouse Marketplace. All of these projects, combined with the future Veteran's facility, will serve to build up the southern part of the city.

Recently I drove through southern VB and was surprised to see all the growth in this area. I'm wondering if the "green line" is slowly melting away giving way to more development.

The Crossings at Independence is looking quite large on the corner of Independence Blvd and Princess Anne Rd. It'll be interesting see this area as the Spence Crossing development grows all the way to the opposite corner.

The new CHKD building is coming together and looks quite large. It largely resembles the other building in the Princess Anne Commons campus behind Sentara Princess Anne.

City looks to build biomedical park as part of initiative

Virginia Beach could designate 155 acres in Princess Anne Commons for a biomedical research park by the year’s end. The project is part of what the city is calling its BeachBio initiative to diversify its economy with an expansion into that area of research.

I'm glad the city has decided to further diversify its economy. The southern part of the city will sprawl no matter what so hopefully it will be a good use of the property. It's great to hear of a possible tenant for most of the proposed building as well.

I would love to see this area become the next big area for research and technology jobs, not just VB, but all over. It's time to focus on things outside of the military to help this area grow. Good move for the city.
