Bad Development Name
I was disappointed to see that the new housing development on Crozet Avenue will be called “Chesterfield Landing.” For the most part, developers in this area have at least made a nominal effort at trying to choose a name with some sort of local significance. Stanley Martin Homes has a wide footprint in Virginia, and “Chesterfield Landing” sticks out here like a sore thumb, just as “Roanoke Terrace” or “Fairfax Court” would. I would hope Stanley Martin Homes would consider changing the name of the development to something that honors the local history and culture that they are so eager to advertise on their site.
