City (7/14)



  1. Seems to me, though, that if economic conditions are such that the DD could move forward a lot sooner, then it should. The way the plan is now…the developer can’t secure the needed land for each phase until a certain date. Dumb! That means most of the DD will sit vacant for much of the next 15 years! Just stupid!
  2. However it goes down, it better build out much sooner than 10-15 years!
  3. Man, surely some RBS article had that information in it. I don’t have a subscription, so I can’t check…but surely, right?
  4. For some reason, I was thinking that the GCs for this are the same as DE: Clayco and Hourigan. I could be way off, but I thought that’s what I remember…maybe I’m thinking that just the architect was the same (Pickard Chilton).
  5. Do they even still have those?! I thought they had closed most, if not, all of those stores. At least, that’s what I thought. If they are still around, I don’t think Walmart is putting a lot of stock in that concept anymore.
  6. Good question. I should know this, but I don’t recall hearing who that was. Anyone else know?
  7. Just for the record, I’m not worried this tower will get built, it would just be nice to see things get started. Was hoping construction would start this month, but perhaps there’s some minor delay. I guess these things can take time, especially, these days with supply shortages and such high demand for construction work.
  8. I saw this and thought the same thing. I'm really wanting to see something going on at the site: some sort of staging, a construction fence, equipment build-up...port-a-potties...something!
  9. Oh wow…that’s disappointing. Yes, at least live up to the vision the county set forth! Anything less just doesn’t work. It was envisioned that way for a reason! Geez…
  10. Went to Amazon Fresh the other day up here in Springfield for the first time and was not impressed. Very expensive and their selection was surprisingly lacking. I expected so much more from an online retailer that seems to have it all!
  11. I think this piece was written specifically to get “I Miss RVA” spun up. Expect to see him respond once he wakes up with a long post shooting this guy (and his opinions) down. I can’t wait!! Happy Friday everyone!
  12. Great story and new report video of an update on what’s been going on since the developer for the Diamond District was announced. Looks like there is a lot of excitement in the air: https://www.wtvr.com/news/local-news/richmond-diamond-district-project-september-21-2022
  13. More details released in today’s RBS: https://richmondbizsense.com/2022/09/22/downtowns-wytestone-plaza-office-building-to-be-converted-into-apartments/ Love the announcement, but would love for them to improve the exterior. I get that some like it, but I still think I just looks weird. Either way, they are looking to turn this project pretty quickly - could see new tenants move in by next year!! Now I want to see some movement on the other conversations previously announced in that area…and even cooler, the building of a new tower that Genesis is planning to build!
  14. I swear, if these morons prevent Avery Hall from building, at least, a 17-story building, I'm going to be pissed! The developers need to ignore these people. The problem is that they are getting media attention! Why?! These folks are the very small minority and the whole project need not change for a few voices of opposition. Also, the list of requests from them continues to grow longer and longer. At first, it was just the view. Fixed. Now, it's about overcrowding, etc., etc. These developers need to realize that it will NEVER stop. The list will continue to grow no matter what they do. I'm worried that a SUP hasn't been submitted yet. One thing I've learned in this town is this: if you want to build something, do it quickly or else there will be too much time for the NIMBYs to come out and build an army of opposition to your project. In many cases, these morons win and the project ends up dying. This is the story that just got me worked up: https://www.wric.com/news/local-news/richmond/redesign-of-manchester-residential-project-fails-to-consider-community-concerns-richmond-residents-say/
