Richmond City Council unanimously approved a project Tuesday that will construct 94 single-family homes on an undeveloped 25.5-acre site bordering the Richmond Country Club golf course.

The project will include a mix of single-story and two-story detached homes ranging from 1,900 to 2,700 square feet. The homes will take up 30 to 46 percent of the properties they will encompass, which means each lot can accommodate an 800 square foot accessory dwelling unit (ADU) should a future owner decide to build one.

The project also includes constructing a street with sidewalks down the middle of the development, an emergency access road, landscaped areas, community garden, small park and a bio-retention basin.

Homes will start in the low $700,000 range, according to current estimates.

Off-site improvements that are part of the project include assisting on murals for nearby Parchester Village, as well as roadway infrastructure improvements including safer bicycle and pedestrian connections to nearby transit and open spaces.
