CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — After a decade’s worth of development, a Chesterfield neighborhood on a bank of the James River is preparing for its third and final phase.

The 740-acre Tarrington on the James, along Robious Road beside James River High School, is getting ready to start work on its last five sections, including three close to the river and the community’s riverfront park.

The sections will add about 200 homes to 490 already built, bringing Tarrington’s home total to 710 at build-out. Street and site work is getting underway, and construction is expected to wrap up next year.

Tarrington’s developer is Richmond-based Realty Ventures Group, which got started on the development in the mid-2000s. RVG principals Herbert Fitzgerald and Richard Nuckols said the project appealed to them for its location and access to area schools, shopping and the river.
