From the Henrico Citizen:
An eye-opening $291-million proposal to redevelop Belmont Golf Course in Lakeside into a mixed-use community – featuring a multipurpose arena, an outdoor whitewater and outdoor adventure park and a mix of hotel, office, retail and residential space – is among six proposals submitted to Henrico officials as part of the county’s request for bids to build an indoor arena.
Key details about four of those proposals – including costs and whether they would involve associated development projects in addition to an arena – are not yet known because they were redacted in versions made public last week by the county. The other proposal included only an offer for the location of an arena.
But full details about the Belmont proposal – submitted by Belmont Community Development, a group that was formed specifically to make the bid and that includes Odell Architecture, contractor Barton Malow Company and Sports Facilities Advisory/Sports Facility Management – are public and appear to be the most ambitious of the six submissions. They would change the face of Lakeside and the region.
