|This building on Gallows Road is slated to be torn down.|
Two old houses on Gallows Road between Woodburn Elementary School and Holmes Run Acres Recreation Association will be torn down and replaced with three new houses.
It’s a by-right project, which means the property doesn’t need to be rezoned. The current zoning designation is R-3.
|The sign announces "Woodburn Estate."|
The developer is Millennium Investment & Development Group LLC based in Centreville. Smith Engineering is doing the site preparation.
The existing houses include a cape cod at 3445 Gallows Road built in 1949 and a flat-roofed one-story duplex at 3441 Gallows built in 1951. Millenium purchased both properties from James Chaconas in September 2013 for $815,000.
|This house will be replaced, too.|
Neither lot is connected to a sewer system, so the new houses would be on septic tanks, says Mike Wing, the land use specialist in Providence Supervisor Linda Smyth’s office. The lot boundaries will need to be reconfigured and the new houses will need to be accessible from Gallows Road.
Millennium is seeking a waiver of some required frontage improvements, including an eight-foot wide paved path. Construction could start by the end of the year.
