  1. Third day in a row for project announcements by BizSense in Manchester This time it's actually two projects, the one I'm gonna highlight is 116 units at the SW corner of Hull + Commerce (812 Hull St). Income based apartments, so the design isn't particularly as eye candy as the two projects unveiled in the last two days are, but still respectable in that it adds density and gets rid of more surface lots. I guess I really only have an issue with the prison-like street interaction but hey. Better than a surface lot Once again, someone must've been keeping an eye on the permits because
  2. Two days in a row, huh. Manchester is on a roll. Thalhimer has announced it's intention to put up an 8-story apartment building dubbed Overlook II, with 271 apartments + ground floor retail, as sort of a successor to the Overlook at City View right on the next lot. Someone must have had the scoop, because it's already on the development map too lol. Good stuff https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/09/16/thalhimer-plans-to-put-up-eight-story-apartment-building-in-manchester/
  3. Neat project at Summit & Norfolk (1616 Summit Ave, to be specific), project is dubbed 'Sixteen Sixteen'. Vacant 1 story building to be converted into commercial space, then have 4 levels of condos built on top of it, new construction. Only 4 units, but hey. Still good nonetheless. And condos are good to diversify the SA housing stock. https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/08/25/condos-planned-for-scotts-addition/
  4. Nice little cover story from Style summarizing all the major museum developments going on, not much in the way of tantalizing new information, but a good summary nonetheless: https://www.styleweekly.com/richmond/museum-makeovers/Content?oid=17667463
  5. https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/06/23/developer-kleyman-targets-manchester-with-bainbridge-street-projects/ Two 3-story infill buildings on empty lots off Bainbridge, 20 units total: 15 units + retail at 1421 Bainbridge St (shown below); another 5 units at 1122 Bainbridge St
  6. Big exciting news incoming!! VMFA will unveil the design for their $190M expansion later this month! https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/06/15/virginia-museum-of-fine-arts-to-unveil-design-for-190m-expansion/ More specifically, 'by June 30th'. According to museum staff, It's been in the works for 11 years, and when they opened the McGlothlin wing in 2010, it had already outgrown it's space. "The VMFA expansion will include a new 100,000-square-foot wing off of the existing Mellon and Lewis Wing, a renovation of 45,000 square feet in three museum buildings; and a new annex bu
  7. Welp, pack it up boys, we had a good run.
  8. And an official RTD article rehashing much of the above. https://richmond.com/news/local/new-buildings-coming-to-vcu-athletics-village-student-commons-high-rise-dorm-arts-lab/article_625834de-0f86-5a93-84b6-e9a272e72e59.html Great stuff. Over $1.2 billion in construction.
  9. Lol we really ended up with the worst case scenario didn't we. A hole in the skyline with an unforeseeable future and distant timeline for redevelopment. Im not blaming Dominion though, the office market is cratered with the pandemic and it was probably cheaper to just tear it down than to try and rehab the building
  10. Ngl, I hope Cordish wins, the Urban One location is so out of the way and does nothing for the non urban environment around it, just will bring people in their cars and then back onto the highway. At least a SA location would encourage people to use the bus and spend tax dollars at some of the restaurants in town if they come in. And the location is already fairly industrial that it's removed from any residential development, and tbh the Urban One proposal is just so underwhelming with its oodles of surface parking and maybe that's the root of my dislike for that one A SA casino would con
  11. Yes, me likey. I'm liking the critical mass of density these developments would bring. They're maximizing the use potential of these lots. Can't wait for renderings
  12. Neat. Two 3/4 story buildings w/ 122 units planned on an empty plot of land at Government Rd & Glenwood Avenue in Chimborazo. Decent infill, densifying the area. https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/04/07/kleyman-planning-20m-apartment-complex-on-east-end-plot/
  13. 5-story, 173 unit building proposed by DC developer in Manchester! 15 W. 7th St. https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/03/30/d-c-developer-plans-5-story-173-unit-apartment-building-in-manchester/ Good addition to all the proposed development in that cluster. According to BizSense: Good stuff. I notice someone had already added it to the development map before the article came out. UP ahead of the curve again lol
  14. BizSense has officially dropped the news on that 12-story apt building we've been tracking for a few months lol. UP ahead of the curve again https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/03/16/12-story-apartment-building-planned-for-jackson-ward-parking-lot/ 12 stories, 254 units. Love the density this brings. Let's hope all these 12 story buildings going up encourage developers to continue on that route. Richmond should be graduating from that 5-6 story range at this point, especially in places like Jackson and Monroe Wards
