  1. 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
  2. Welp, pack it up boys, we had a good run.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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/
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. From BizSense: https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/02/09/city-reaches-deal-for-redevelopment-of-public-safety-building-site/ "Ordinances and legal documents reflecting the negotiated deal between the city administration and developer Capital City Partners were formally introduced to the City Council at its meeting Monday evening. The deal will be reviewed in committee and brought back to the council for consideration at a future meeting." Looks like we're nearing something here? Bad news is it notes the project's office space sq footage is slightly scaled down (90K vs. 1
  11. I wouldn't think NIMBYs would bother either given it's so far back from Broad or Hermitage and it's pretty much matching the height of the parking deck next to it
  12. The next phase of Sauer Center is a 4 story office building to be built next to the new parking deck behind the Putney building. 53k sq ft of office space. https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/02/08/4-story-office-building-to-be-next-phase-of-whole-foods-anchored-sauer-center/ Just wish that surface lot serving Whole Foods was pushed back from Broad and the building be built there but oh well
  13. 6-story, 126 unit building planned by Thalhimer at 1508 Belleville St. Good stuff, more infill. https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/01/27/thalhimer-freeland-plan-126-unit-apartment-building-in-scotts-addition/
  14. That Public Safety Building site looks like it's approaching a sale to the development partner by the city. Proposing around 4 mil tho the site is appraised at more than 15 mil because the developer will assume the costs of demolishing the Public Safety Building. Negotiations are nearing the home stretch it appears. Great news. https://richmondbizsense.com/2021/01/14/negotiations-with-city-for-development-of-public-safety-building-site-in-home-stretch/
