The Henrico County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted last night to approve a rezoning request that will allow the county’s venerable Regency Mall to be transformed into an urban town center with up to 1,250 residents, over time.   Charles  Fishburne reports.


Charles Fishburne:  The county had worked with developers for over a year on a plan to save Regency. Former Board Chair Pat O’Bannon.

Pat O'Bannon:  Of all the shopping centers in Henrico, Regency, which was our premier one just a few years ago, now I think can be brought back.

Fishburne:  Key will be residential housing, which will begin with a 285-unit apartment complex to replace the old Sears building.  Spokesman Mark Slusher.

Mark Slusher: It’s been a great process working with the neighbors and the county to make it all come together.

Fishburne: Plans include retail, restaurants along the perimeter an aquatics center, a trampoline park.  There is even early speculation it might be a possible site for the county’s proposed indoor arena.  Charles Fishburne, VPM News.
