Watkins Center

MIDLOTHIAN, VA

The mixed-use project included office, retail, hotel, and residential components, and required the creation of a Community Development Authority in 2006 for the purpose of financing infrastructure improvements for roads, water, sewer, storm sewer, grading, and engineering.

Metropolitan acted as the lead developer of the lifestyle retail center that incorporated four major sub-developments within the district. Metropolitan also acted as master planner and lead developer in the design and planning of three components including office, hotel, and retail uses. The fourth component in the mix was 1,600 residential units adjacent to the development.
