  1. Manchester Development

    No go on a grocery store for Manchester Town Center. Developer instead is revamping the plans to include possibly townhomes with a mix of smaller retail. http://www.richmond.com/business/local/developer-of-manchester-parcel-rethinking-what-the-property-might-become/article_21e59c7b-3b7a-535f-b006-e4912489cdf9.html
  2. 2018 - Development Predictions

    Richmond definitely is on the upswing in terms of development, and I thought it would be fun to list our predictions for 2018. So let us hear your hopes/dreams/insider knowledge for the new year! I'll start with some easy ones: - Developer announced for the Arena Redevelopment, but project won't start for years. - New Apartments announced in Manchester, Scotts Addition and Shockoe. Some hopes/dreams - A high-rise hotel announced for Downtown. Seems a Hotel Indigo would go great here. - Grocery store announced for Manchester. - A Fortune 1000 corporate relocation to Richmond, hopefully leading to a new high-rise in Downtown.

    New Brewery coming to Hull St with a rooftop bar! http://dogtowndish.com/2017/12/11/dogtown-brewing-patio-views-coming-hull-street/
  4. Noticed earlier but it looks like they have started putting glass on the bottom floors.
  5. Manchester Development

    A few updates around the neighborhood: Richmond Christian Center seems to have a bidding war going on by developers for redevelopment. https://richmondbizsense.com/2017/10/09/developer-eyes-manchester-church-property/ Another new gallery is set to open this weekend along Hull St. That's 2 in the past 30 days. http://dogtowndish.com/2017/10/20/new-manchester-gallery-opens-today/ In addition to Butterbean Market, and Hot Diggity Donuts, there are also plans to turn 1209 Hull St into a yet unnamed brewery and restaurant, with apartments on the top two floors. https://richmondbizsense.com/2017/10/17/brewpub-donut-shop-market-anchor-couples-growing-manchester-gamble/
  6. Azalea Square

    Any one know any updates on this project. Seems last fall they found a new developer for it. http://www.richmond.com/business/local/new-plans-for-azalea-mall/article_8564d5b0-cf3b-5b62-b468-422734b678f2.html
  7. Manchester Development

    Development rights have hit the market for the lot near the new townhomes on 7th. I like the placeholder they have put on the marketing material. http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/20508094/401-421-West-7th-Street-Richmond-VA/
  8. Richmond Sports

    Hi all. New to town from Charlotte, but have been an UPer since 2005. I'm loving Richmond and can sense its on the verge of exploding. Looking forward to being a part of the city. Noticed that TopGolf is looking to build a facility in Henrico, although a location near Rocketts Landing would've been perfect. One just opened in Charlotte and they are a huge draw. Could've been great to take out-of-towners to and then grab a beer at Stone's. http://richmondbizsense.com/2017/08/25/topgolf-zeroes-in-on-richmond/
  9. Richmond International Airport

    I've flown WOW out of Baltimore. They definitely charge you for everything, but the staff was very nice and the plane was cleaner than most AA/Delta flights. I plan on doing it again.
  10. Townhomes are going between the Mcdonalds and Chatham. I believe the little strip center from Chatham to Nicks Auto is what was planned to be renovated. Could be wrong though.
  11. Past time Billards on Central has been given 31 days to vacate by the new owner. Building to be demo'd and construction seems imminent on the new townhomes. Anyone hear anything new about the renovation of the shopping center next to it? I remember seeing a marketing flyer for it at some point.
  12. A lot of land being cleared just between Briar Creek and the Green Oaks Lane in Commonwealth. I know the two homes are being cleared to make way for 4 homes, however, what is the land being cleared for? It's been advertised as multi-family for years.
  13. Construction fencing is up for the center two blocks of Village at Commonwealth. Last I had heard, they would be two buildings with ground floor retail/amenities with interior parking garages.
  14. Oakhurst Neighborhood

    I've talked to the Sales Agent a few times. Pricing is not released yet, but should be comparable to their Bryant Park and City Park pricing.
  15. Eastland Mall Redevelopment

    Some construction equipment moving dirt at the site today. Guess they're trying to level it to make it more appealing.
