  2. 12- story building has been nixed. Instead they are under contract for 3001-3008 Leigh to build a 5-story 72-unit building. https://richmondbizsense.com/2020/01/13/developer-tweaks-plans-for-scotts-collection-project/
  3. I guess this could go in a few forums, but CoStar has announced they will anchor the new 400,000 sf tower adjacent to the Arena. Plans to double the workforce to 2000. Huge news! https://richmondbizsense.com/2020/01/13/breaking-news-costar-in-talks-for-new-office-tower-within-navy-hill-development/
  4. Shiplock Brewery has closed. I went once and the beer was ok but the space seemed off. https://richmondbizsense.com/2020/01/13/shiplock-brewing-sinks/
  5. Overall I like it and the ground floor of both, look fairly decent. I am a bit confused by the Broad St side of the old hotel, though. What's going on with the windows?
  6. Tripsavvy also has us #5 for top places to visit in 2020. https://www.tripsavvy.com/where-to-go-in-2020-4780444
  7. Comfort is set to close at the end of the month, after 17 1/2 years in business. https://www.richmond.com/food-drink/restaurant-news/it-s-time-comfort-restaurant-is-closing-at-the-end/article_131fca92-8ab7-54fc-a7fa-90fe41e47536.html
  8. Whole Foods is FINALLY set to open on January 30th.
  9. Nice! More details and a rendering, about the building. It’ll have classrooms for the hospitality/culinary programs, a street level cafe, and hotel rooms on the top floors. https://www.richmond.com/business/vuu-planning-hospitality-school-hotel-on-site-of-former-motel/article_c3d62223-a598-54fd-9939-18589bdcb837.html
  10. 10 years will be here before you know it. Great news!
  11. VUU has closed on the purchase of the Budget Inn making it the first time in 40 years that they have grown outside of their gates. The hotel will be demolished and replaced with a multi purpose building focusing on learning and community development. The ultimate goal is to turn Lombardy from Brook to Chamberlayne into a mixed use stroll district leading into campus. https://www.nbc12.com/2019/12/17/virginia-union-university-acquires-budget-inn-property/
  12. This has finally sold for $5.4 million. No immediate plans to redevelop but you know it’s coming. https://richmondbizsense.com/2019/12/17/loupassi-sells-broad-street-site-for-5-4m/
  13. Agreed, the building is a copy/paste is every city. Our argument, is nearly EVERY building in Manchester looks like this. The skyline of Manchester is visible from the interstate, river and downtown. We should demand better products and not just be happy with the status quo for the sake of Density.
  14. The massing is off on the apartment buildings. I've seen similar sized building built in Charlotte, and they come off looking like a GIANT wall. I know the economics of it probably wouldn't work, but splitting the apartments into 4 buildings would be a great improvement to the street-scape.
  15. Outside of the new phase of Cityview and the Current, these new buildings are looking horrible. I hope to be proven wrong, but imagining a riverfront full of pre-fab buildings similar to the "blue stripe" building, is a bit discouraging.
