Asheton Newport News Va 2008

NEWPORT NEWS -- Newport News for the first time has turned to a new way to borrow money in order to pay to build roads and water and sewer lines for the massive Asheton development planned for the Lee Hall section of the city.

The city plans to create the so-called Asheton Community Development Authority, which will establish a special tax district that will tax Asheton residents at a higher rate in order to repay the $12 million used to build the roads and utility lines.

City officials hope the 436-acre development, which will include 1,685 upscale houses, town houses, condos and apartments in the northernmost part of the city, will keep and attract wealthy people who sometimes move to the Williamsburg area to find large houses.

The city will hold a series of public hearings in January on the taxing authority. If the City Council creates it, Newport News will follow in the footsteps of Hampton, which created one to help pay for revamping Coliseum Mall. And this week, New Kent County announced a similar deal to pump $85.7 million into the New Kent Vineyards development.

This form of financing is becoming more and more popular, but Newport News officials have pledged to lower its $531 million debt to help it retain its favorable credit rating and continue to borrow money at a lower interest rate.A Wall Street rating agency recently raised concerns about the city's growing debt. If the agency downgrades the city's credit rating, it could cost Newport News about $150,000 per year in higher interest, Gregg Jones, the city's budget director, said this week.Newport News officials say it's too early to tell if the $12 million will count toward the city's debt. "These are new in Virginia," Florence G. Kingston, the city's development director, said of community development authorities. "We don't know how the rating agencies will look at it. It's new territory."Bond experts say the rating agencies could view these taxing authorities in two ways. They could see them as an indirect tax or debt burden for the city since it charges some residents with higher taxes, said Bonnie M. France, a Richmond lawyer who advises Hampton on bonds.But they could also view the move as positive because it brings in more tax revenue.

Asheton is estimated to reel in as much as $6 million a year by the time it's built out in 10 years.France, the attorney, sees more cities creating these taxing authorities, which localities view as a new and creative way to help developers pay for roads, parking lots and water and sewer.Newport News drafted a policy to allow for such an authority about a year ago.In addition to the $12 million for infrastructure, the city also has agreed to set aside a $10 million credit line for the developer. The millions set aside for Asheton and a slight shift in the development's blueprint raised the eyebrows of at least one City Council member. Asheton's developer, L.M. Sandler & Sons Inc. of Virginia Beach, recently added more green space to its plan and changed 23 town house to single-family houses, reflecting more demand for houses than town houses, officials said."I can only trust that the developer delivers what he promised," said Madeline McMillan, one of two City Council members who represents north Newport News.Some residents have worried about the 100-acre buffer between Asheton and two of the city's historic attractions, Endview Plantation and the Lee Hall Mansion. But additional changes are not in the works, said Kingston.The developer will start to buy 125 acres in March for the neighborhood's first phase. Houses will be available for sale in 2008.

New Kent Vineyards Va Fall 2007 formerly Farms of New Kent

A new destination for those who love life is coming to one of America’s oldest counties. Live here. Play here. Even work and shop here not long into the future. The name of New Kent Vineyards, located in New Kent County in the heart of historic eastern Virginia, will soon be on the lips of homebuyers and travelers alike. An extraordinary blend of residential communities, golf and, not least, vineyards and a winery, New Kent Vineyards is just beginning. There will be no end to its delights.

Suppose that you are not a wine expert, much as you might appreciate them. Could it be said, nevertheless, that you are a connoisseur of the things that constitute the good life? New Kent Vineyards will reward your expertise.
Envision the life that will be yours here. A beautifully designed home befitting your needs — spacious or perhaps smaller and always well appointed. A Rees Jones championship golf course for your leisure hours—may they be many! The winery and a unique town center called The Village not far from your door. Shops, restaurants, a Bed and Breakfast, and even equestrian amenities adding their own touch of class to your community.
Is this the kind of life you are ready to live?

An unbroken swath of significant American history stretches along the I-64 corridor between the old capital, Williamsburg, and the current capital, Richmond. Situated on historic land between the James and York rivers, New Kent County lies at virtually the midpoint of a region in which the nation began and from which its Revolutionary and Civil Wars unfolded.
Just off Interstate 64, on pristine acreage spreading north from the well-known travel corridor, New Kent Vineyards is itself unfolding. Access to airports, Colonial Williamsburg, urban amenities and Virginia’s myriad other attractions are within easy reach. Perhaps you have passed this way in your previous travels. Soon you will want to stop and consider making this your home.

As you exit from Interstate 64 and turn north on Route 106, you are on the threshold of New Kent Vineyards. New Kent County’s new Visitor and Commerce Center welcomes you first—its site to be accompanied at a later date by office and retail centers.

As you proceed on 106, you will travel through several roadway roundabouts, each of which has a distinctive character. You begin to see vineyards as you come to the points that will soon be the entrances to some of New Kent Vineyards’ unique neighborhoods. Looking right from one roundabout location shows you the site of Four Seasons by K. Hovnanian Homes—a gated active-adult community of low-maintenance residences for those 55 and better. Looking left at the same roundabout reveals the land on which a traditional single-family community called The Arbors will rise.

Continuing north on 106 and looking to the right, you see the location of The Village, a neo-traditional style neighborhood of commercial, retail and townhome residences anchored by a pedestrian mall and Farmers Market. Further north past Route 249, you come to more vineyards and the area that will be home to a collection of community amenities that includes a clubhouse, a winery, a tennis center, a country inn, a restaurant, and an equestrian center.
Finally, you arrive at an expanse of land on your left where our estate homes—called Viniterra—will be built around and along a Rees Jones championship golf course, which will feature its own clubhouse with extensive amenities.

New Kent Vineyards Va Fall 2007

It will be a year before the first grapes are crushed to make wine at New Kent Winery.

But the winery is going up. The vineyard is long planted.
"We studied wineries for five to six years," developer Pete Johns said yesterday before a ceremony marking the start of a major project. "We included all the neat and functional ideas from wineries in California, Canada and all of Virginia."
A private tasting and meeting room will feature 8-by15-inch heart pine beams from 1852. Roof trusses in the wine-making room are from 1901, salvaged from Southern Railway in Shockoe Bottom.
Carriages drawn by draft horse will bring visitors into the vineyard to talk with the vintner.
"The experience here will sell the wine as much as the wine itself," Johns said.
The winery is the centerpiece for New Kent Vineyards, a project on 2,500 acres that will rise during the next 20 years off state Routes 106 and 249 just north of the Talleysville exit of Interstate 64.
The vineyard will overlook a village with shops, boutiques and living space on upper floors. There will be a golf course, a polo field and equestrian center with miles of trails.
The plan calls for 2,500 houses ranging from $150,000 town houses to $2 million estates.
Johns said he's not worried about the cooling housing market. "This will be available when the housing market starts to turn around."
The first houses will be ready by late next year, he said.
The focus now is the vineyard and winery. "When this area is complete, it will be lit up like a Christmas tree from Thanksgiving to New Year's," Johns said. "It will be a must-see for people who live in the region."
The winery is being made mostly with recycled materials, including hand-made, old-growth red cypress shingles and hand-made bricks from Richmond pre-dating the Civil War.
The newest salvaged materials are 105-year-old beams, and the oldest are 168-year-old cobblestones from a railroad yard in Massachusetts, said E. Taylor Moore Jr., the Richmond builder and supplier for the winery.
The cypress shingles were made from logs salvaged after being under water for 100 or so years off the Florida Panhandle, he said.
Moore is one of the largest purveyors of antique materials in the U.S., supplying projects such as Colonial Williamsburg and George Washington's Mount Vernon.
"Usually, you design a building, then figure out the materials," said John Hopke of Williamsburg, the project's architect. "We designed this building around the materials."
The 12,000-square-foot winery will cost more than $3.5 million, Johns said. It could have been built for much less with new materials.
"We want it to be our legacy. This will be the most important element in New Kent in . . . agri-tourism."

The Spectrum in Norfolk Willoughby Spit Bayfront Condos

NORFOLK –– The face of eclectic Willoughby is changing, as evidenced Wednesday morning by the backhoe that began clearing 15 acres for an upscale housing development. A little more than a year after it was announced, work started on the Spectrum at Willoughby Point, a $200 million condominium complex that will aim to remake the Norfolk side of the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel. An old hotel, restaurant and other buildings are coming down. They will be replaced by three towers containing 294 condominiums, 30 townhomes and three loft apartments. Units will sell for as much as $1 million. There will also be 22,000 square feet of retail space and a restaurant.
Although the hot housing market in Hampton Roads appears to be cooling down, the demand for housing along the seven miles of Chesapeake Bay beach front in Ocean View remains robust, officials say. A.R. “Rick” Gregor Jr., of the Futura Group of Virginia Beach, which is developing the Spectrum project, said he has nonbinding deposits for half of the housing units 60 days before contracts can legally be written and nearly a year before the first condo will open. “We haven’t even begun marketing yet,” he said. Real estate assessor Wayne N. Trout said while real estate assessments citywide will go up about 23 percent in July, assessments from central Ocean View to Willoughby will rise an average of 60 percent.
Willoughby is an older neighborhood of about 4,000 residents on a peninsula of sand churned up by a hurricane in 1749. In places, poorly maintained apartments and duplexes are sandwiched between stately older homes and newer condominiums. The spit is divided by a crowded, four-lane road. At 4th View Avenue, traffic headed onto Interstate 64 sometimes backs up for miles. The area suffers from flooding problems, and there are pockets of poverty.

Now developers want to buy rundown properties and replace them with upscale housing. Meanwhile city officials are trying to get a grip on how to redevelop Willoughby’s 128 acres . They are looking for ways to accommodate the high-density growth the market seems to demand without disrupting life for locals. Raymond L. Gindroz, who heads Urban Design Associates of Pittsburgh, floated ideas for revamping the area at two public hearings last week. Gindroz is a planner who helped the city revamp downtown and much of Ocean View. Among his proposals: turning West Ocean View Avenue into a two-lane road from 9th View Avenue north, reworking the 4th View interchange and changing the area’s restrictive zoning. Most land in Willoughby is zoned for single-family housing, so if a developer buys an apartment building, all he can build in its place is a house. “There are certain areas in Willoughby where we need to look at doing more than just single-family houses,” Councilman Don Williams said. “You can’t redevelop those apartment buildings in Willoughby with single-family houses. It’s not financially feasible.” Gindroz said his plan would not increase the number of residents. Rather, it would create more density on certain properties and create more open space on others. “In fact, the density probably would be a little lower,” Gindroz said. It would allow for onestory buildings on the beach and Willoughby Bay, and buildings would be progressively higher toward Ocean View Avenue, which conceivably would leave everyone with water views. Many of Gindroz’s suggestions, including the zoning changes, were greeted warmly. Others, such as reducing East Ocean View Avenue to two lanes, drew a mixed reaction. “The problem is not the volume of traffic, it’s the speed,” Gindroz said. “It really rips out the heart of the neighborhood. But it’s up to the people here to decide.” Gindroz said he will take comments from more than 100 residents who attended the forums and present a final report to the city in June. By then, Spectrum construction will be under way. An iconic statue of King Neptune atop the restaurant, which has been visible to interstate motorists for decades, will be part of the new project . It will be placed in a retention pond at the entrance of the new development. “Willoughby has a great history,” Gregor said. “We wanted to preserve a bit of that history in our development

East Beach brings traditional neighborhood design to the Chesapeake Bay waterfront in Norfolk, Virginia. The first 17 homes in this new 100-acre planned community were built for the annual Homearama in October of 2004.

The community has strict architectural guidelines which dictate front porches and traditional styles. Within the guidlelines, architects still have plenty of leeway to form a stylish neighborhood.

A big clubhouse sits on the Bay, with sandy beaches beyond. The calm waters are ideal for families with small children. Lights on the nearby Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel are an attractive sight at night.

Many homes are three stories tall, and all have porches or decks on the upper floors. "Carriage houses" with apartments over the garage are common. What a great idea -- the apartments are separate from the main house and can be rented or used by the family teenager or grandmother. Garages and driveways are in the rear, not out front.

Yards are tiny and the homes are large, which is what you expect on such valuable land. Shopping and restaurants already exist nearby, and more will probably be built as the entire Ocean View area continues to redevelop.

Eales Cliff Condos Fords Colony Williamsburg VA

Ford’s Colony Williamsburg Breaks Ground on Eaglescliffe Condos Williamsburg, VA

August 9, 2006 With more than 60 units reserved, Ford's Colony has broken ground on its first luxury condominium project - Eaglescliffe - which will bring maintenance-free living to the heart of Ford's Colony Williamsburg.

"We saved the best for last," said Brian Ford, general manager of Ford's Colony Williamsburg. "After many years of value building we feel that Ford's Colony Williamsburg is ready for condominiums that offer a lavish atmosphere combined with convenience."
Presales on the condominiums opened this summer and will culminate in a sales weekend this fall. The property where the condos will be located is in the process of being cleared and graded with construction scheduled to start this fall. Completion of the first two buildings is expected to take a year.

The 84-unit condominium project will feature units ranging from 1,700 to 2,200 square feet with prices starting in the mid $500,000s.
With a standard interior package that includes stone countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, hardwood cabinetry, a jetted garden tub and his-and-her closets, owners will start with an upscale environment that they can tailor to their individual taste and needs. Each unit offers an open kitchen, flexible guest suite that is easily converted to a bedroom or home office, luxury master bath, balcony and a view of the community from every room.
Eaglescliffe Condominiums will fill a demand for care-free master-planned residential living. Centrally located only a short walk from the Ford's Colony Country Club and the site of a new spa that is in the planning stages, Eaglescliffe Condominiums will include the same rich design traditions and luxury living features found throughout the community, including all-brick exteriors.

Condo owners will enjoy membership privileges in the Ford's Colony Country Club and the new Ford's Colony spa when it opens.

The four-story residential project includes the same 24-hour security blanket that covers the entire community. As an added layer of protection, a new security feature for Eaglescliffe Condominiums requires card access between the parking deck and building entrance.
The Eaglescliffe Condominiums are the first of several projects at Ford's Colony, designed to target specific lifestyle interests. In addition to a spa, a variety of new home sites and plans are in the works.
