    That is right in line with what Style Weekly wrote: http://www.styleweekly.com/richmond/the-ruins-of-richmond/Content?oid=2348952 Manchester Canal and Richmond Paper Board Co. Building Where: Hull Street near the Flood Wall Built: Circa 1800 The Manchester Canal, now an abbreviated and swamplike waterway that was built by black and Irish laborers, was envisioned as a navigation connection to the west. While the James River and Kanawha Canal took on that task on the north side of the river, this canal served paper mills in the vicinity of the Mayo Bridge. Today, the skeletal Richmond Paper Board factory, built in 1929, offers a picturesque silhouette for joggers and hikers moving atop the flood wall. But enjoy the view soon. This ruin awaits demolition for a high-rise apartment complex scheduled on the 2-acre site. Some 200 units comprise the first phase.

  5. It definitely appears that there is some action going on around the site. I noticed yesterday some bulldozers parked next door and cones put up on a side of the building. Hopefully the demo is soon.

    Ledbury is moving to 315 W Broad St. by the Fall. This is awesome news! Hopefully more retail to follow. http://richmondbizsense.com/2016/06/01/ledbury-finds-better-fit-on-broad-street/

    Anyone have any updated info on the bus depot redevelopment in the Fan. There is a lot of work being done at the site currently, however if I remember correctly there were no final plans...just proposals for public feedback? Right?
  8. So, after having the night for the design to sink in... I really like the design of the building. For some reason it reminds me a little of the Rosslyn Twin Towers but modernized. I think the height is appropriate for Richmond and will add to the density. My only fear is that from the angle of the released image, it makes the two buildings look like they have huge gap between them, which seems very suburbanesque. Like it's meant to be in Tyson's Corner and not downtown.

    http://richmondbizsense.com/2016/04/12/downtown-redevelopment-marks-centennial/ The Centennial and its 24 apartments are opening this week but the more exciting news is: "The second phase includes construction of an eight-story building on an adjacent lot along Sixth Street. That building – two stories higher than originally planned – will consist of 84 apartments above parking on the ground level, as well as 2,500 square feet of retail. That’s an increase from initial plans for 50 units and 2,000 square feet of retail above two levels of parking."
