Spring Rock Green Shopping Center is no more

In 2020 the Chesterfield County planning commission unanimously approved the renovation of the Spring Rock Green Shopping Center in Midlothian Va. because it was underutilized. The plan was to
transform the mall which was practically empty into something that would benefit the community.The county’s Economic Development Authority (EDA) applied to rezone the 41.9-acre Spring Rock Green property for an expansive plan which includes:

a walkable mixed-use community while creating synergy with both the Stonebridge development south of Route 60 and the adjacent Boulders office park. Up to 1,100 multifamily units, 125 townhouses or condominiums, office and retail space, a hotel, a parking deck and a sports and entertainment facility that will include two regulation-size ice rinks.
