  1. Pretty cool looking building. Better than the parking lots that are there now.
  2. Recent study says about 30 sidewalks are missing, and an additional 30 are inadequate. I really hope one of these days, there will be sidewalks throughout, power lines buried, lamp posts and street trees installed, bike lanes painted and parking restricted within the sight lines of intersections. One can dream! https://www.nbc12.com/2019/09/16/study-sidewalks-missing-scotts-addition/
  3. Massive 800- home subdivision being proposed between Bailey Bridge Rd and Hull St. Plans call it “mixed use” but it’ll only be some drive thru options, ie coffee shop, fast food, gas station. Also, this ridiculous line about how it’ll be different: “you’re able to have a true master-planned mixed-use community with some commercial nodes, hopefully a craft brewery.” ::rolls eyes:: https://richmondbizsense.com/2019/09/16/tarrington-developer-eyes-800-home-mixed-use-project-near-brandermill/
  4. They’ve begun clearing the land for this development. Also, the lot has been demolished for the Current.
  5. Richmond came in #2 for anticipated employment growth for Q4 2019! Source: https://siteselection.com/investor-watch/190912.htm For Quarter 4 2019, 100 of the largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) in the United States report positive Net Employment Outlooks, says the latest report from Manpower Group, based on 11,500 interviews with employers in every state, D.C. and Puerto Rico about their hiring intentions. (Survey results for each MSA are available at meos-press.manpowergroup.us.) The strongest outlooks are in Columbus, Ohio; Richmond, Virginia; Greensboro, North Carolina; and Provo-Orem, Utah.The Net Employment Outlook is derived by taking the percentage of employers anticipating an increase in hiring activity and subtracting from this the percentage of employers expecting a decrease in hiring activity. When we run these 100 metro areas through Conway Analytics’ database (which requires at least $1 million invested, 20 new jobs created or 20,000 new sq. ft. of space), we find that these 100 have collectively welcomed 2,716 corporate facility investments since September 2018. Topping the list are Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston and Cincinnati. As for the Manpower Employment Outlook leaders, Columbus is No 6 on our list with 90 projects. Richmond is 51st with 11 projects; Greensboro is 42nd with 14; and Provo-Orem, known more for its startup and entrepreneurial culture, is 89th. — Adam Bruns and Daniel Boyer Net Employment Outlook Q4 2019 Metropolitan Statistical Areas 31% Columbus 29% Richmond 28% Greensboro, Provo-Orem 26% Deltona, Nashville, San Antonio 25% Austin, Las Vegas, McAllen, Springfield 24% Charleston, Grand Rapids, Madison, Ogden, Tucson, Wichita, Winston-Salem 23% Allentown, Raleigh, Salt Lake City, San Francisco 21% Atlanta, Baton Rouge, Chattanooga, Harrisburg, Honolulu, Milwaukee, Oxnard, Palm Bay 20% Akron, Cape Coral, Cleveland, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Jose, Tampa 19% Boston, Dayton, Detroit, Fresno, Houston, Portland 18% Augusta, Greenville, Memphis, Miami, Spokane, Virginia Beach, Worcester 17% Albuquerque, Birmingham, Charlotte, Colorado Springs, Kansas City, Louisville, New Haven, Omaha, Sacramento, Stockton 16% Los Angeles, San Diego, Tulsa 15% Albany, Baltimore, Buffalo, Jackson, Jacksonville, Lakeland, Little Rock, New Orleans, North Port, Orlando 14% Bakersfield, Boise City, Hartford, Riverside 13% Denver, Des Moines, El Paso, Minneapolis, New York, Oklahoma City 12% Bridgeport, Dallas, Knoxville, Philadelphia, Providence, St. Louis 11% Indianapolis, Syracuse 10% Cincinnati, Scranton, Seattle, Toledo, Youngstown 8% Chicago, Washington 7% Columbia 3% Rochester
  6. Looks like CarMax is expanding their footprint within the city. They’ll be leasing about 78,000 sf of the renovated building. https://richmondbizsense.com/2019/09/12/carmax-pulling-into-sauer-center-space/
  7. Nest @ 188 units Interbake Phase 2 I’m guessing about 150ish. Quality Inn Phase 2 @ 12 stories, 205 units.
  8. Could be a glut of discounted properties hitting the market soon... https://richmondbizsense.com/2019/09/10/feds-targeting-dozens-of-hilds-southside-properties-for-potential-forfeiture/
  9. More apartments coming to Scott’s Addition. This time Greystar has purchased the building across from Stella’s for redevelopment. They plan on razing it to build a 5-story, 350 -unit mixed used building with 10,000 sf of ground floor retail, along with a 350 space parking garage. https://richmondbizsense.com/2019/09/10/developer-greystar-eyes-340-apartments-on-scotts-addition-site/ oddly enough the article states 350 units, but the URL says 340.

  11. Haven't seen this before. Looks to be the location of the old Baileys Automotive Insurance. I like it! 7500 sf of ground floor retail space and 23-ish apartments.
  12. Continued re-habbing of buildings in the Arts District: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/200-202-E-Broad-St-Richmond-VA/14319706/
  13. Thank god! I was worried they’d do a copy & paste from short pump.
  14. I'm sure we've seen the news, but Baja Bean Co. and Pearl Raw Bar are both closing. I know restaurants typically don't have a long life span, but I do think we've reached saturation when it comes to restaurants. Along with the ever changing retail landscape, I'm curious to see what the future of commercial spaces entails.
