Chesterfield is saying goodbye to the old Spring Rock Green shopping center in favor of a redevelopment called Springline at District 60.

Located at the intersection of Route 60 and Chippenham Parkway, the shopping center will soon be the site of a 42-acre, mixed-use urban village. The plan is to center it around a gathering space designed for festivals, farmers markets, and public events.

At an announcement event on Tuesday, March 21, county leaders expressed their excitement for Springline’s promise of employment opportunities, retail, and restaurants.

The name Springline comes from a nearby spring where businessman James Robertson started the Beaufont Lithia Springs Company in 1896. The name District 60 — a reference to nearby Route 60 — is meant to connect the broader area, including the nearby Stonebridge development.

County officials kicked off the redevelopment with a ceremonial demolition of the former Best Products building. The first phase of construction will include:

  • A six-story mixed-use building with 300 residential units
  • A 150,000-sqft office building
  • A green common area
  • A sports tournament and entertainment venue

After the first phase, expect more housing, commercial space, entertainment venues, and a hotel to be added. The site will also host a new precinct for CCPD.
Mark Miller, the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors member for the Midlothian District, spoke about the opportunity for sustainability and connectivity at Springline. Plans for the development include walking and biking trails, public lawns, and trees for shade.

“I can feel the community spirit beginning to lift,” Miller said.
