Business News
  • Capital One Financial Corporation has completed construction of a $150 million data center in Meadowville in Chesterfield County. The Virginia data center is part of Capital One’s core IT infrastructure that incorporates new technologies to better meet customer needs. The project will create at least 50 new jobs.
  • Pocahontas State Park will be adding 30 miles of mountain bike trails that will enhance the experience of both local and international mountain bikers. The new trail system will become the 12th International Mountain Biking Association Ride Center. These destinations are known by bikers around the world as being the most rugged and challenging trails. The International Mountain Biking Association proposed the ride center at the park as an ongoing legacy project of the Richmond World Cycling Championships, which is coming to Richmond in 2015. The ride center is expected to be completed by May 2015, and also will include improvements to an existing 20 miles of trails at the park with a total cost of $1.2 million. A study done by Magnum Economic Consulting Inc. estimates that the trail improvements alone would increase annual economic activity in the county by $2.7 million and by $4.5 million in Virginia. They also would bring 31 jobs to the county and 51 to the state. The ride center also will feature hand-bike trails for the handicapped. Parks and Recreation will be partnering with Pocahontas State Park to coordinate the ride center, and to connect its trails to other trails in the county’s current and planned system.
  • Shamin Hotels, one of the leading hotel management companies on the East Coast, has purchased the Holiday Inn Koger Center and has converted it to a Doubletree by Hilton hotel. The Koger Center has served the region for 26 years as a Holiday Inn and is one of the most sought-after conference hotels, with 26,000 square feet of conference space.
  • Retail space in Phase 1 of Stonebridge is available. The beautifully designed development already includes the 123,000 square foot Kroger Marketplace store, the largest in Virginia.

New tenants include the following: Qdoba Mexican Grill, SweetFrog Premium Yogurt, Sleepy’s, Great Clips for Hair, Subway restaurant, Lee Nails and a Virginia ABC store.
  • The annual First Choice Business Awards program recognizes companies that contribute to the county’s economy and its residents, and is done in partnership with the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce and the Chesterfield Business Council.
