After a long period of silence about the status of Cloverleaf Mall, there is movement. In January, Chesterfield County officials expect to have a signed purchase agreement from Crosland Inc., who will be redeveloping the site. The buyers have been involved since May 2006, and have several versions of a proposal that calls for redeveloping the aged mall into a mixed-use development.
Several plans have been proposed since Chesterfield purchased the property in 2004, all of which include a "pedestrian-friendly community that blends residential and business components". The county has said that it will be subsidizing the redevelopment, in order to make it work.
