FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Breeden Company’s Red Mill Landing wins prominent design award
Virginia Beach, VA – December 20, 2011 – The City of Virginia Beach formally recognizes The Breeden Company with a “Planning Commission Design Award” for the creative and innovative design of Red Mill Landing, a mixed-use project at the intersection of Nimmo Parkway and General Booth Boulevard.
Criteria reviewed in the selection process included surrounding area impact, environmental significance and how the project’s design is unique in contributing to the City’s overall quality of life and livability.
Red Mill Landing, the first dynamic “live, shop, dine and play” mixed–use community in the Red Mill area of Virginia Beach, is comprised of over 26,000 square feet of retail space, a CVS Pharmacy which sits on a two acre out parcel, and 96 one-, two, and three-bedroom apartment homes. The construction began in the summer of 2009 and the last building was completed spring 2010.
Torrey Breeden, executive vice president for The Breeden Company, executed the acquisition, rezoning process and partnered with Jeff Love Architects to design the project. Creating a thoughtful land plan to accommodate all various development components was imperative to making the project successful. The land is a unique shape and finding a layout that met the various uses required creativity. Careful consideration and efficient design resulted in a beautifully laid out community. An array of neighborhood serving retail and restaurants are situated in the front of the property for ease of access to Virginia Beach patrons. The residential area is tucked behind the retail, allowing a more private and serene home for the residents, yet convenience to on-site retail. Red Mill Landing is truly an exceptional community not only to the neighborhood, but to Hampton Roads.
“Torrey was diligent, creative and persistent about getting this deal done and bringing his vision to fruition.” said Ramon W. Breeden, Jr., company founder and chief executive officer. “It’s a great addition to our portfolio and exemplifies the top-notch quality that will be delivered in our numerous pipeline projects.”
