Neighborhood Profile - Chesterfield Heights, Norfolk, VA 23504
Posted by Bart Folta on January 23, 2012 in Neighborhood Profile

Neighborhood Profile -

Chesterfield Heights, Norfolk, VA 23504

Chesterfield Heights is a small, cohesive residential neighborhood located along the Eastern Branch of the Elizabeth River in Norfolk, Virginia. The river distinctly forms the southern boundary of the neighborhood, while the Ohio Creek tributary marks the western edge. The borders are further delineated by the streetscape, with Ballentine Boulevard (originally Merrimac Street) forming the eastern edge and Interstate-264 (originally the path of Highland Avenue) defining the northern edge. The boundaries of the residential neighborhood currently occupy approximately 85 of the original 130 acres conceived by the Chesterfield Heights Corporation in 1904. The original suburb was platted westward to Fifth Street, now Filer Street, which was the eastern boundary for the late-19"-century development of Riverside. Riverside was originally improved with a number of vemacular, Queen Anne, and Colonial Revival dwellings by 1900. Although originally developed earlier than Chesterfield Heights, Riverside was enveloped in the community by 1920. Developed during the first quarter of the 20th century, Chesterfield Heights emerged as a suburban community, just to the northeast of the growing downtown area of Norfolk. The neighborhood, originally aimed at catering to upper class patrons, developed with large single-family dwellings along the Eastern Branch of the Elizabeth River, exhibiting revival and American movement-era styles and forms. The flat tract was landscaped with tree-lined streets, a waterfront park, and a system of roads laid in a slightly irregular grid pattern. The domestic buildings are buffered from the paved public streets by sidewalks and a grassy strip planted with mature shade trees, primarily consisting of large crepe myrtles. Although over seventy dwellings were constructed in Riverside by 1910, the initial development of Chesterfield Heights constituted roughly thirty dwellings, primarily located along Chesterfield Boulevard and Marlboro Avenue between the years 1904-1914. Of those initial buildings, twenty-two remain in the original Riverside area and twenty-three remain within the original Chesterfield Heights boundaries.
