A proposed $130 million development will bring 118 townhomes, 284 luxury apartments, 96 senior apartments and 6,000 square feet of retail space to Hampton.
The project, called The Olde Hampton Village, will span 16 parcels across nearly 23 acres near downtown Hampton, at the former site of the Lincoln Park housing development, on LaSalle Avenue, off Interstate 64 and near Langley Air Force Base and NASA Langley. The former housing development closed and was demolished in 2016.
The proposal went in front of Hampton City Council, seeking rezoning and use permits, and earned the council’s approval.
The Olde Hampton Village is a joint venture between Virginia Beach-based Axis Global Enterprises Inc. and Virginia Beach-based EDC Homes, and has been in the works for four years, according to a news release from the developer. The townhomes would each be three stories and the developers are proposing four multifamily buildings, each four stories high. The development will also have park space, a pool, a dog park and washing station, a clubhouse, and a fitness center. It could also include a childcare facility, hair salon and coffee shop.
The developers expect to break ground on the project in late summer 2023, after all site and building plans are approved and finalized. The project will be built in phases and is expected to be completed in 28 months.
The site was once a Hampton Redevelopment and Housing Authority housing project that was too old to rehabilitate, according to a news release from the city. The housing authority has approved the sale of the land.
