    Scott's Addition Development

    The old hotel has finally been purchased. Plans include converting the building into 33,000 sf of street level retail and mostly 1 bedroom apartments in the other 5 floors, a 4 story parking deck and a 12-story residential tower. Plans are to start construction in January. https://richmondbizsense.com/2018/12/03/salomonsky-white-buy-scotts-addition-hotel-property-8m/
  2. I like the contrast. Hopefully the rest of the complex will continue to be different styles.

    Guess we could place this info here, but while out driving today, I noticed what seemed to be Bird Scooters on Main Street. Turns out they did a sneak attack and launched without a permit today. They’ve been requested to remove them immediately, but I hope they can come back. Great way to get around town, even if you have a few idiots on them. https://www.richmond.com/news/local/city-of-richmond/update-richmond-shutting-down-unsanctioned-scooter-share-system/article_8c5579a6-d3f0-5596-8648-7a175b7bb7f7.html

    Noticed today they were out there doing soil sampling. That area just seems prime for redevelopment.

    Yeah that’s a pretty solid project. It’s going to be a very busy stretch of construction between the towers near the flood wall, portRVA phase 2, and the new office/apt building near Artspace.

    Pretty attractive project. Will have about 13,000 sf of commercial space and they are preserving a pad for a future grocery store.

    From what I have heard, the owner of the building directly behind it has been fighting it because it’ll block its view and lower rents. I think having a cleaned up canal walk and a more developed feel in the area would only benefit their value. Also, the the leveled lot is now being used as temporary parking while they closed off another parking lot for Cityview Lofts to do demo there. Something is afoot.

    Retail in Richmond

    Found the marketing brochure for Regency Mall. Including some fancy pictures and a possible Residential component. https://www.thalhimer.com/sites/default/files/listings_files/Regency-11x17-Flyer.pdf

    There's ground floor retail (Building E) that runs along the bottom of the garage facing Elwood and pedestrian entrances to the Grocery store on that side (page 14). I agree there's a missed opportunity for a residential component at the complex, however, I'm sure neighbors would complain if there was any substantial height to the project.

    That’s what I had heard, maybe I can walk over and ask the contractors. Across the street you’ve now got the recently announced Apt/Office project. Also, adajacent sites next to the silos under contract, soil sampling on phase 2 of PortRVA and the new zoning overlay allowing for increased height, It’s going to be a very active construction zone soon!

    Marketing brochure for Carytown Exchange. Will include a parking garage, possible Publix grocery store and street facing retail. They’re attempting to mimic the architecture of Carytown so it blends with the neighborhood. Seems pretty solid to me. https://regcorpweb.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinityfiles/docs/default-source/default-document-library/carytownexchange-regencycenters.pdf?sfvrsn=e2fee527_2

    The lot that I mentioned was leveled the other week, continues to see activity. They recently put down a moisture barrier and are trucking in gravel. At one point they were trying to get a grocery store here. Fingers crossed there’s an announcement soon!

    Area between the apartments and Hull Street. They pretty much leveled all the dirt today.
