  1. CoStar has purchased Homesnap for $250 million. The bigger their international presence gets, the more I keep hoping their new tower will be impressive. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wsj.com/amp/articles/costar-in-advanced-talks-to-buy-homesnap-for-250-million-11606068000 EDIT: Other acquisitions through the years according to Wikipedia. You'll probably recognize a few names. "In April 2012, CoStar Group acquired LoopNet for $860 million.[4][5] In April 2014, the company acquired Apartments.com for $585 million.[6] In April 2015, the company acquired Apartment Finder for $170 million.[7] In July 2015, the company acquired Belbex an online marketplace and information provider for commercial property based in Spain.

    Here is a rendering of a proposal back in 2018 for the location. http://www.fultzsingharchitects.com/east-main-street-mixed-use
  3. Along with Stellas Grocery and Continental, it looks like an ABC store is coming to Cityview Marketplace. "Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority leased 3,381 square feet of retail space at City View Marketplace at West Sixth and Hull streets in Richmond."
  4. Another large assemblage of land has been put on the market. Along with the Movieland lot, a developer could really do something ground breaking here.
  5. Work is FINALLY starting on the transformation of Model Tobacco Building into Apartments. Should have it's first tenants by Spring of 2022. https://richmond.com/business/the-iconic-model-tobacco-plant-in-south-richmond-undergoing-a-59-million-redevelopment-into-apartments/article_ed4f62e2-ada2-5adf-9f66-2f65506deb53.html Sounds like some cool amenities are planned too. "Plans call for a rooftop community room and deck that will have commanding views of the city's skyline. A former power plant behind the main building on the 14.79-acre property will become a recreation center for tenants. It will include a half-court indoor basketball court, gym space, a 30-foot climbing wall, a large community room with a cooking kitchen, a yoga studio and a gaming center. Off the gym will be a deck and an outdoor swimming pool."

    Great to see both of those buildings being repurposed. I always wondered with 1509 E Main sat vacant for so long.
  7. They’re closing the Dock St and Brander St flood gates. James River expected to crest at its highest level in 24 years, tomorrow.
  8. Further renovation of older commercial space on Broad Street. This time the building two doors down from Blanchards. https://www.thalhimer.com/sites/default/files/listings_files/3125WBroadSt.pdf
  9. This is happening throughout the country, not just Richmond. Doesn't make sense to pay higher downtown rates, when most of those workers only need to pop into the office, or don't need to at all. Until Covid passes, I don't imagine any major commercial/office projects to be announced.
  10. Updated brochures for an office building, mixed use building, and restaurant. https://www.thalhimer.com/sites/default/files/listings_files/RockettsLanding-PremiumOffice.pdf https://www.thalhimer.com/sites/default/files/listings_files/RockettsLanding-Restaurant.pdf https://www.thalhimer.com/sites/default/files/listings_files/RockettsLandingHQ.pdf
  11. I like "flex" space on the ground floor. You can use it as an apartment until the market demand changes to needing more commercial space.
  12. More lawsuits from the surrounding NIMBYs. “Inserting downtown, high-rise buildings around historic, mostly residential neighborhoods ... does not nurture what Richmond is in terms of its legacy and charm.” Somehow though, multiple parking lots, suburban style drive thrus, and cheap metal buildings that are present now, are ok. https://richmond.com/news/local/neighborhood-groups-file-suit-against-city-ahead-of-vote-next-week-on-pulse-corridor-rezoning/article_75a7e667-7048-550f-8d50-3e59b71f351d.html#tracking-source=home-the-latest
  13. Thanks! While you are at it, I feel like you could archive: Richmond Project List (redundant with the Development Map) Welcome to Richmond (hasn't been used in 4 years) Richmond Coffee House (redundant with off-topic postings) Just my .02 in cleaning up some of the forum.
  14. I feel like we should pin this topic to the home page so it's easily accessible.
