The Williamsburg City Council has approved a development plan designed to alleviate the strain on student housing at the College of William and Mary.

The Triangle Retail Project, also called the “Wawa Project,” calls for the construction of a three-story building with 10,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and 14 student apartments on the two upper floors. In total, 56 students could be housed there.

The building site will be the one-acre lot between the Wawa Food Market and the Williamsburg Baptist Church on Richmond Road.

The Council also approved the establishment of a Planned Development College District, which calls on developers to create student housing and student-oriented retail stores surrounding the College.
