This bit of news comes to us from Richmond BizSense.com:
Harper Associates is planning an expansion of the Shops at Stratford Hills, a retail center the company developed in the early 2000s.
Plans call for a new retail building to be occupied in part by Chipotle, and, if approved by the city, 36 townhomes on a roughly 3-acre plot next door at 6935 Forest Hill Ave.
Most of the land eyed for the townhomes is currently wooded, and the former Lock Stock & Barrel Tattoo building that sits on the site would be razed to make way for a new 6,500-square-foot, drive-thru-ready outparcel.
There is a catch.
In order to move forward with the expansion, Harper is seeking to revise the conditional use permit it was granted from the city when initially developing the center. Its application was filed with the city last month.
