Retail in Richmond

Build an urban target downtown where the Charles store was with residential above. We need retail in the main commercial area of downtown.

If we build up a greater critical mass of actual downtown residential population, that could actually work. Right now, I don't see Target going there given the current limited demographic figures. Headcount matters.

There’s also a Target a few miles down at Broad and Libbie. 

Even given the proximity - if we build a sufficient critical mass of downtown residential population to support national name/chain retailers - I'm thinking an actual downtown location would do well regardless of the location farther along up Broad.

Any word on whether or not the Dollar Store on Broad near VCU is set to reopen?

 I see the other retail that was set ablaze has reopened.  I’m wondering will The Dollar Tree reopen in The Opus? 

Nothing had occurred with Dollar Tree's space so I think they just left the location, with Foot Locker replacing it.

Not a big surprise that Saks has closed off its upstairs floor. I think it's positive that they're staying instead of closing completely. As the new owners reposition Stony Point, there's super potential for dense infill residential while keeping a condensed and reduced retail row with a mix of luxury (Saks, Tiffany, etc.), restaurants, and more local-serving retail for residents. The Dick's spot is ripe for residential. It would also be great to add ingress/egress to Huguenot and Cherokee, but I suspect NIMBYs would oppose that.
