    New Richmond Arena

    There are examples I can think of, but they still involve a sports team having their home there...like a college basketball team. Three that come to mind off the top of my head are in Lexington, KY, Louisville, and Tallahassee, FL. Rupp Arena is a better example because it is tied into the convention center and hotels downtown. Because UK basketball plays there, they fill the 23,000 seats every home game. There has been talk of UK building an on campus arena, but the city could not support two arenas. At this point, the way it works is mutually beneficial. Richmond is twice as big as Lexington, so I think an arena without a home team is more doable here...but still a challenge. I would like to see VCU play in a larger arena. The Siegel Center is too small...hard to get tickets and they are ridiculously expensive for certain games. Maybe they could at least play a few there. There may be better examples and I would love to hear them. I think your points are valid...though I am still fully on board with the development.

    Personally, I love it and hope it happens.

    Manchester Development

    Townhomes coming to Manchester next to Legend Brewery. I was less than excited at first, but the more I thought about it I think it will be a good thing to increase home ownership in the neighborhood and having that income bracket spending money in the city is a plus. https://richmondbizsense.com/2018/10/31/eagle-construction-swoops-city/

    The Locks at 321

    Moving right along... Pics from today One thing I hadn't thought about until today is that the Capitol building will now be completely obscured when viewing from the Floodwall.
  5. I know this was covered already, but I took these this morning and figured I would share.

    Richmond Region Transportation

    Wasn't sure where to post this, but snapped a shot of the bridge over 95 in Petersburg as I was driving to ATL on Thursday. Should be an attractive addition when done. Anyone know if it will be lit at night?

    Richmond off-topic postings

    All "things" have to start somewhere. Why can't Richmond be a trendsetter? To me, this is way more sensical than the shuffleboard place in Scott's Addition, but I hope both are immensely successful!
  9. I would like to keep the current tower, but somehow modify the lower portion to make it more open and pedestrian friendly. I am not sure how possible that is, but it would be my preference.

    Scott's Addition Development

    I would have thought so, but in driving by I saw no evidence of one yet.

    Manchester Development

    More development for Manchester! I would imagine the Williams Bridge Building would be reincorporated as it is kind of iconic in Richmond. I know the ship has probably sailed on this, but I think this site ould also be a good option for the baseball stadium. It's close to town and I95, but wouldn't overburden an existing neighborhood. Just a thought, but happy this will be redeveloped since it currently sits idle. https://richmondbizsense.com/2018/06/20/sprawling-williams-bridge-co-facility-contract-targeted-mixed-use/
