J.E. Liesfeld Contractor, Inc. has completed the high profile Stonebridge development at the site of the former Cloverleaf Mall. The project started in late 2011 with demolition of the Cloverleaf Mall and in early 2012 the site preparation phase began. The project highlighted many of Liesfeld’s capabilities with massive amounts of site demolition, large storm sewer pipe installation, complex erosion control sequencing with multiple new sediment basins and our GPS capabilities with grading.
The projects headline tennant is the one of the largest Krogers on the east coast and several smaller tennants.
The project also involved recycling the building and site demolition material into stone base saving the client money.
The project was completed for our client Hoar Construction the developer Crossland Southeast.
Redevelopment of RVA
The project was high profile due the Cloverleaf Mall angle which served as the premiere mall of Richmond, Virginia throughout the 1980s and early 1990s but the redevelopment angle was larger. The Greater Richmond development region has been expanding west to Goochland, east to New Kent, North to Hanover and south to the outer parts of Chesterfield. But with much of the employment at the heart of the region and the resurgence of downtown living…redevelopment is beginning to take place closer to the city. Stonebridge served as a prototype to what is possible for the older commercial developments of the Midlothian Turnpike and West Broad areas.
Stonebridge has spurred developments along Midlothian Turnpike and future phases at Stonebridge including a large apartment complex.
