Stratford Hills Shopping Center

Bounded by a combination of Forest Hill Avenue, Huguenot Road and Chippenham Parkway, Stratford Hills was developed in the 1960’s as a part of the burgeoning movement towards suburbia. With large wooded homesites along meandering residential roads, the new version of suburbia looked and felt different from the first attempts at suburbia in the Near West End and Ginter Park. Stratford Hills has many varied architecturally styles – stately colonials, larger tri-levels, and brick one story homes can be found, as can some contemporary influences. As many lots were never built upon, the occasional odd lot may be buildable or contain a home built during the last 10-15 years.

The proposed route is a five-mile loop and includes a section of Riverside Drive with views of the James River.
