The Future of Innsbrook

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Innsbrook has traditionally been a large swath of land filled with mainly office buildings, but that could soon change. Highwood Properties, which operates the park, hopes to turn the area into a mixed used development that will include some new office buildings, but also new residential and shopping areas.

The goal would be to keep the charm of its quaint, quiet setting, but add the benefits of an urban setting. Some neighbors like how that sounds.

Paul Kreckman of Highwood Properties said, "very much still the pedestrian oriented the friendly environment we have now, we have great lakes and walking trails we want to keep all those great attributes and just build a little more urban scale into it."

"People want to get back to that main street feel and I was delighted to see that Innsbrook is open to see how they can better utilize the land use out here," said Short Pump resident Linda Turner.

Of course there are many reservations neighbors still have. Traffic and new high rises make some concerned that the community they live in, will lose the charm that it currently has.

Before any moves are made, the plan needs the approval of the county board of supervisors.
