CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) – Cloverleaf Mall, an abandoned property at the corner of Midlothian Turnpike and Chippenham Parkway, was purchased by Chesterfield County in 2004. Seven years later, the county is ready to move forward with the project by selling all 83 acres in three phases. 

Crosland Development will purchase the first phase by April 1, 2011. Within 30 days of the land sale, bulldozers will rip the 30-year-old building to shreds and construction of a 90,000 square foot Kroger will begin. The Kroger will be similar to the one built in Short Pump and will include a gas station. 

The project will be a combination of stores, officers and apartment complexes. The plans fit in with the proposed comprehensive plan. Bill Dupler, Interim Deputy Chesterfield County Administrator, explained the project will be similar to a development in Chester called Chester Village Green a mixed-use community.   

The county purchased the property in an effort to revitalize the eastern portion of Midlothian Turnpike. County leaders said the center, which will be called Stonegate, will spark economic development in nearby shopping centers. 

Currently a Bank of America branch and Firestone are located in the parking lot of Cloverleaf Mall.  The pair of businesses will stay, but will undergo an exterior make-over to match the new buildings set to go in place. 

The Kroger will take about a year to build. The county expects the grocery store to open early 2012.
