HENRICO COUNTY, Va. ( – A local developer has big plans for a stretch of farmland north of Short Pump.

Robert Babcock, 52, recently sold 30 acres off the North Gayton Road extension to the Breeden Company for $8.72 million. Breeden will use that land for a 420-apartment project. But that is only a slice of a larger development that will stretch from Gayton to Pouncey Tract Road on the north side of Interstate 64.
