FORT MONROE MASTER PLAN APPROVED BY GOVERNOR
Preserve the Property, Tell the Stories and Make Fort Monroe Economically Sustainable
The Fort Monroe Authority is pleased to announce that the Governor of Virginia has approved the Master Plan developed for the 565-acres of Fort Monroe. The Master Plan focuses on a mixed use concept, combining adaptive reuse, new construction and open space. The plan features residential, retail/dining, hospitality, employment and institutional areas, along with enhanced public access to the waterfront and beach.
The final presentation, which was given to the Board of Directors on October 24, 2013, sets the design standards for all new construction on the property. “The final product is a milestone in the history of Fort Monroe and establishes a pattern for the future of the property,” said Glenn Oder, Executive Director of the Fort Monroe Authority. Throughout the two and a half years of development, there were three main goals guiding master planners Sasaki Associates – preserve the property, tell the stories of Fort Monroe and make Fort Monroe economically sustainable.
