timberland voucher Commonwealth Green homes under construction in York
After some delays, residential condos are under construction at the 50 acre Commonwealth Green mixed use development near Kiln Creek in York County.
The first three buildings with six condos are underway with the goal of having move ins by June, said John Olivieri, president of 4th Generation Home Builders in Virginia Beach. Construction began in mid November and he hopes to have a model home for the Mainstay at Commonwealth Green community by May.
Each building has two condos with a smaller one on bottom and a larger one on top that connects with a downstairs garage, he said. The condos will range in size from 1,500 square feet to roughly 2,100 square feet. Eventually the community will have 94 condos in 47 buildings within three to four years,
Commonwealth Green development partners are targeting home based businesses and other professionals who would want to live in a walkable community near the Kroger grocery store, restaurants and other stores.
Eventually, Commonwealth Green will add a 20,000 square foot, two story commercial building next to the Staybridge Suites and a community meeting and event space across from the Commonwealth at York apartments, Tucker said. About 10 acres near the community building will be a recreational park area with wetlands, he said.
Tucker partnered with Donald and John “Jack” Davis in developing Commonwealth Green,
which was approved by the York County Board of Supervisors in 2012.
