Plans for a 162-apartment mixed-use development on what is known as the Norsworthy property is under rezoning review with Isle of Wight Planning and Zoning.
Brewer’s Station also calls for 85,000 square feet of retail space, 34 townhouses and 54 single-family units, according to preliminary plans.
The application is expected to go to the Planning Commission sometime in the summer.
The property was formerly approved in 2005 for 42 single family units and the new application represents a change from that, said Matt Smolnik, assistant director of planning and zoning.
The proposed development located at the intersection of New Towne Haven Lane and Norsworthy Drive along Brewer’s Neck Boulevard in Carrollton.
The developer is also working with the county on plans to build a sidewalk to connect the Carrollton Library and Carrollton Elementary School, Smolnik said.
Already approved in the Carrollton area are 1,509 single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses and apartments, including Red Oaks mobile home park, Benn’s Grant, St. Luke’s Village, The Crossings, Bridge Point Commons and Carrollton Condos.
The Planning Commission recently recommended denial for 208 apartments for the Eagle Harbor Tract 8 site, located along Carrollton Boulevard.
Those plans are expected to go before the Isle of Wight Board of Supervisors this month.
Also already approved in the Carrollton area are more than one million square feet of retail, commercial, office and mini-warehouse space, as well as Riverside Medical Center with 30,000 square feet of medical offices and 50,000 square feet of clinical space located at the intersection of Brewers Neck and Benn’s Church boulevards.
All of the developments are located in the Newport Development Service district — an area the county set aside for higher density and commercial development. ...(Subscribe!)
