Spring Creek is a 985-acre planned community located in the growing rural area of Zion Crossroads, in Central Virginia. In order to help prevent sprawling growth in this rural area, Spring Creek seeks to provide a live and work community that offers regional services for the surrounding counties. The overall design for Spring Creek creates a pedestrian friendly community that incorporates a mix of housing types, retail and light industrial uses, regional shopping services, and recreation weaved into the preservation of the site’s ecological systems.
McKee Carson’s responsibilities included master planning, rezoning approvals and entrance design for the community. When complete, Spring Creek will feature 1,200 housing units, 60,000 square feet of office space, 180,000 square feet of shopping, and 250,000 square feet of light industrial space. Additionally, the project includes an award-winning 18-hole golf course designed by Field Sport Concepts affiliate, Carton Design Studio and a community center that includes swimming, tennis, and a playground which are linked to the community via a system of trails and sidewalks.
