It’s been almost 10 years since the Americana Mobile Home Park’s last resident pulled up stakes to find a new home in another park of the county. A developer was to build a shopping center and apartments there.
After much talk, and applications, made at the Chesterfield planning office and publishing elevations and site plans, the owners Trollingwood Land LLC have owned the property for 20 years and now George Emerson and Phil Roper are ready to close on the 66-acre tract.
Initially the development will consist of 385 urban style apartments units in three buildings along the west side of Moores Lakes. A former developer had envisioned a similar development although a more modern design. Emerson and Roper plan to build a development similar to their complex north of Moores Lake called Colony Village, which the company is currentlyexpanding. The project will cost $54 million and apartment will rent at market rate which, for the Moore’s project, will range from $1,050 to $1,550. Commercial and retail development will also be included along Jefferson Davis Highway.
