Hannaford Brothers is a free-standing one-story, single-tenant retail building constructed in 1990, and is located within the Shoppes at Bellgrade Shopping Center in Chesterfield County, approximately one mile southwest of Richmond city limits. The 5.439-acre site, at the intersection of West Huguenot Road (Route 147) and Polo Parkway, includes a rear loading dock and an open asphalt paved parking lot. Route 147 leads west from downtown Richmond before turning south just past the subject to intersect approximately one mile south with U.S. Route 60 (Midlothian Turnpike), a major east-west commuter thoroughfare. Retail development for the neighborhood is concentrated along these two roads. Route 147, in particular, provides high visibility and accessibility to Hannaford Brothers. The subject's neighborhood is about 90% built-out and is experiencing healthy growth as population and employment continue expansion from Richmond into the suburbs. Richmond, founded in 1737, serves as the state capitol and is approximately 100 miles south of Washington, DC and midway between Atlanta and Boston. Population has seen a dramatic increase, up 13.7% from 1980 to 1990, and another 8.9% through 1996. This growth has been matched by business expansion and employment growth, due in part to its convenient location between Atlanta and Boston, competitive tax policies, and excellent transportation systems. These factors, in addition to the strong sales at this location, made Hannaford Brothers an ideal candidate for financing.
