Disclaimer: This animation was not created by the property owner, the developer, Food City, or the Town of Abingdon. The conceptual drawing found below the animation, however, was supplied by the developer.
The video is a conceptual animation of the proposed Meadows commercial development in Abingdon, VA. The opening scene is a bird's eye perspective of the site in a south west direction. The Virginia Creeper Trail can be seen at the bottom of the screen. The second scene is as if you are standing on the Virginia Creeper Trail 6' above the trail. The Town park and ElderSpirit community is directly behind the camera. he third scene is a bird's eye perspective roughly above Taco Bell on Cummings Street looking west across the project area.
The anchor tenet of this development is Food City with shouldering retail and hotels. The model is based on the conceptual drawing seen below released by the developer. The only liberty taken in the creation of this model are the height of buildings. The following building heights are used:
1. In order for the site to accommodate all the elements of the first conceptual built-out plan, 60'-80' must be removed from the hill top.
2. Food City: 45'
3. Shouldering retail: 25'
4. Hotels: 50' (5 stories)
5. Restaurants: 20'
The rezoning of the proposed property, which allows the commercial development to move forward, goes to vote (rezoning from agriculture/ open space to business/B2) on December 7th at the Southwest Higher Education Center in Abingdon. Please share and continue to voice your opinions to our Town leadership.
