Williamsburg Crossing: Land Planning

James City County, Virginia


This Shopping Center located at the crossroads of Route 5 and Route 199 in Williamsburg was originally conceived and constructed as a traditional regional shopping center. As development proceeded, governmental planning and economic changes made the development of the last phases less than ideal. Hopke & Associates was engaged to brainstorm possible alternatives.

The proposed plan is to re-purpose the existing center as the hub of a mixed-use community, adding housing, mixed-use buildings, and extensive pedestrian-oriented hardscape to create a walk-able self-sufficient community. Initial response from county planners and the public has been exceptionally positive.
