Magnolia Green breaks ground on golf clubhouse and aquatic center in Chesterfield County
Magnolia Green, a large residential community in Chesterfield County, broke ground Tuesday on a new golf clubhouse and aquatic center. According to the developer, the project is expected to contribute more than $10.5 million to the county’s economy and create more than 300 temporary and permanent jobs.
Tuesday’s ceremony to commemorate the start of construction involved members of the project’s design teams, contractors, developer representatives and county officials. The projects are expected to be completed in summer 2017.
“Magnolia Green continues its phenomenal growth with the unveiling of our newest community amenities,” Tom Page, vice president of iStar, said in a statement. The New York-based real estate investment trust is Magnolia Green’s owner and developer.
The two-story, $5 million golf clubhouse will have 15,000 square feet of space with craftsman-style architecture. Amenities include a bar and outdoor dining area with views of the Magnolia Green Golf Course, which is open to both members and the public. The multi-functional facility will be capable of hosting up to 180 guests for private functions, such as corporate parties and weddings.
Construction of the clubhouse and surrounding infrastructure will create about 135 jobs, including provisional construction, building and design positions. Once completed, it will support about 33 permanent positions ranging from golf professionals to restaurant staff.
Simultaneously, Magnolia Green has broken ground on a new $5.6 million aquatic center. The 10-acre center will offer several pools ranging from an eight-lane, junior-Olympic-sized competition pool to activity pool for the older children with a water tower slide, volleyball net, and basketball hoops.
Construction of the aquatic center is anticipated to create more than 130 provisional construction jobs. Once completed, it will generate 26 seasonal employment opportunities, including pool managers and lifeguards.
Located in Moseley, Magnolia Green offers a wide selection of townhomes, single-family and custom-built residences priced from just under $200,000 to more than $1 million.
