You don't need a master's degree in architecture to appreciate the level of detail and planning Blackwood Development Company put into the development of Midlothian's newest mixed use community, Winterfield Crossing.

Located on the north side of Midlothian Turnpike, just west of Winterfield Road, Winterfield Crossing sits on 25-acres and will consist of 100,000 square-feet of retail and restaurant space, 30,000 square-feet of office and up to 240 age-restricted apartments.

From site planning, design and materials to landscaping, signage and pedestrian friendly features, Blackwood Development appears to have left no stone unturned when it comes to paying homage to the history Midlothian as well as ensuring an architectual design compatible with the surrounding environment. 

Inspired by elements associated with Midlothian (think mining industry and Tredegar Iron Works, to name a few), Winterfield Crossing's design features include "a blend of hip and gable roofs with a combination of brick and stone for building materials to give the entire project a post-industrial style, while incorporating the 21st Century amenities that millennials, young families and empty-nesters all demand."

Utilizing small-scale design techniques (detailed architecture making larger buildings appear smaller in scale), they have masterfully created an environment that feels more like a small village than a large scale commercial development.

James River Nurseries was proud to be selected landscape contractor on this uniquely creative development and applaud Blackwood Development on their attention to detail when it came to masterminding Winterfield Crossing.
