On Monday, July 27, Manassas City Council approved BHP Enterprises LLC’s application for a subdivision to create 85 townhome lots and 20 single-family detached lots, known as Jefferson Square.
According to Manassas Planning and Development Director Matt Arcieri, the next steps for the City are final site plan approval will be the city’s issuance of a site development permit allowing the developer to begin land clearing activities.
“We do not have a schedule or expected construction start at this time,” said Arcieri.
The Jefferson Square neighborhood will be located at the intersection of Prince William and Jefferson streets. This property is included in the Downtown Manassas character area of the Manassas Comprehensive Plan, Arcieri said.
The city approved a rezoning of this property in January 2019, clearing the way for the new townhomes.
Jefferson Square will join multiple housing developments that have sprung up around the city’s downtown in recent years. Those developments include Olde Town Square on Quarry Road, Manassas Station Apartments on Tudor Lane, and Messenger Place apartments on Church Street.
