Villages at Staunton Site Plan
The Villages at Staunton consists of a remarkable collection of buildings situated on 80 sprawling acres in Virginia’s renown Shenandoah Valley. Ranging from Federal Greek Revival structures, built by the same masons who constructed the University of Virginia, to twentieth century Colonial Revival buildings designed to complement the historic setting, this assemblage of buildings is situated on park-like grounds with gently sloping hills and a creek bordered by manicured lawns and weeping willows. The location is immediately adjacent to downtown Staunton, another extraordinary display of historic architecture and charm.
Originally built in the early 1800s as The Western State Hospital, we selected the new name, The Villages at Staunton, to suggest a new community within the historic city. Our vision includes not only the restoration and conversion of existing buildings to new uses, but also the construction of entirely new structures sympathetic to their surroundings. We envision a site with multiple and integrated uses, much as a traditional village would offer, where residential housing commingles freely with commercial uses such as retail, entertainment, office space, and a hotel/spa. Residents of the Villages may not only live here, but they might work, or shop, or dine in the neighborhood as well. Essentially, The Villages at Staunton will become Staunton’s newest neighborhood sharing its unique character with the rest of the community.
Due to the scale and significance of the property, the development will occur over a number of years and is divided into separate phases. You may “mouse over” this site plan to identify different areas of the project and check on the status of any particular phase. We will devote web space to specific projects as they get off the ground, so please visit us frequently for updates.
