2020 Oakville Triangle and Route 1 Corridor Plan Update

On March 4, Inova Health System and Stonebridge announced an agreement to construct an Inova HealthPlex within the Oakville Triangle redevelopment site. With the Inova HealthPlex as an anchor use, the applicant, Stonebridge, is proposing amendments to the Oakville Triangle & Route 1 Corridor Vision Plan. The proposed amendments call for mixed-use development with ground floor neighborhood-serving retail and a mix of residential buildings from townhouses to multi-family buildings. One of the key features of the Oakville Plan is the significant enhancement of Mount Jefferson Park – the proposed amendments will provide further expansion and improvements to the Park. 

The proposed amendments are anticipated to occur in multiple phases with Master Plan/CDD Concept Plan amendments anticipated for review by the Planning Commission and City Council this fall and development special use permits in early 2021. 

Community Engagement Opportunities

Stonebridge and Inova Health System will host a series of community engagement opportunities regarding the proposed Oakville Triangle redevelopment, which will include recorded visual presentations to accompany materials posted below. The community is invited to provide feedback and ask questions through an online engagement portal that will be posted on this page on the dates listed below. Responses will be provided prior to or in the next planned presentation.  

  • Thursday, March 26 
  • Future opportunities for input:
    • April 16 through April 30:  Presentation will include additional design materials and address community feedback and questions from the March 26 materials.
    • May 7 through May 21:  A determination will be made the week of April 27 as to the forum for the meeting recorded or virtual. This session will be focused on feedback gained through the community engagement process. 

The City, Stonebridge and Inova Health System are committed to engaging the community and obtaining feedback on this project and are working together to facilitate the best possible process.


2014-2015 Planning Process and Adoption 

At the January 2014 City Council work session on the proposed FY 2015 interdepartmental planning work program, staff indicated that the owner of Oakville Triangle would like to redevelop their 13 acre (approximate) property. The owner, an entity owned by The Blackstone Group, agreed to fund consultant services and staffing so that the City could begin planning and process the associated applications beginning in FY 2014. The scope of the planning effort and the Oakville Triangle/Route 1 Corridor Plan Boundary included Oakville Triangle and adjacent properties as well as the Route 1 corridor north and south of the site. Staff assembled background information on the planning area to assist members of the community as the process got underway. The City Council appointed Advisory Group and community assisted in developing Plan principles for the site regarding potential land uses, open space, sustainability, transportation and connectivity, and potential community benefits, among other topics. The corridor study reviewed features such as streetscaping, undergrounding of utilities, and potential redevelopment sites along the western portion of Route 1. The corridor study helped to establish a unified streetscape for Route 1 and an integrated approach to potential redevelopment along Route 1.
