Construction has begun on the 80-acre core of New Town, a 300-acre mixed-use, office, retail, and residential development in Williamsburg, Virginia. The town center, designed by RTKL and Cooper Robertson & Partners, will include 300-400 for-sale condominium and townhouse units, as well as approximately 520,000 square feet of street-fronting office and retail space. By employing shared parking, the number of parking spaces is 15 percent below the norm, says Mike McShea of the Staubach Company. The Dallas company is developing New Town in a joint venture with the Endowment Association of William & Mary College and the CC Casey Limited Company. The project will eventually include a research and development corridor linked to the college.
