DEVELOPMENT WITH PURPOSE
Playground of the Potomac since 1892
Town of Colonial Beach Clears Way for Largest Redevelopment Project in Over 125 Years
The Town Council of Colonial Beach has approved the sale of 12 real estate parcels to Dodson Development for $2.7 million. The Richmond-based development firm, which is an established name in the Virginia capital for residential and commercial property management and real estate development, plans to develop a four-phase project calling for townhomes, renovated office and retail buildings, a beachfront hotel, and mixed-use space on the boardwalk consisting of commercial, retail and residences — all in a style that pays homage to the Town’s history.
A Look at What Will Be
The four-phase development will create new jobs and generate new tax revenues for town services and infrastructure, attract new businesses, and provide additional lodging, shopping, and recreation options for visitors to the second largest public sand beach in the Commonwealth. The adjoining boardwalk will benefit from the addition of the hotel by connecting visitors to the beach, riverfront, and historic downtown.
MEET US AT THE BEACH
Playground of the Potomac since 1892.
The Town of Colonial Beach, Virginia (CBVA), is steeped in history, from its original patent in 1651 to its incorporation in 1892 to its establishment as the “Playground of the Potomac” in the early 19th Century and epicenter of the 100-year-old oyster wars that lasted until the 1960s. Located on the shores of the Potomac River, Town of Colonial Beach is home to the second largest public sand beach in the commonwealth, and is quickly becoming a destination for residents of Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
Sale of 12 parcels will create intentionally designed townhomes,
mixed-use area, and beachfront hotel.
“We promise to continue these conversations, listen and learn, and move forward responsibly in a manner that benefits the Town and provides residents and visitors alike with valuable new real estate.”
