Scott's Addition Development

Recommended Posts

Don't know if anyone else caught it or not, but in the article below it mentions that Salomonsky and David White's development in Scott's Addition called Scott's View (1400 Roseneath Road) will break ground in the next 2-3 weeks. This is the mid-rise project that went from 10 stories to about 6 stories IIRC.   Anyway, good to hear this one will move forward very soon:

Yeah, these kind of height rises are rare!  Looks like one building will be 7 stories and the building next to I-195 will be 8 stories now.  Thank goodness for the new zoning, although I would have preferred the original 10 stories.  I’ll take what we can get.  Should be a quality project though.

Awesome news, with the new zoning maybe we'll see Scotts Addition really take off when it comes to new construction. This is a good project and it will have good visibility from I195.

I think it will be nicer softened up (trees and other plantings). 

 

Overall I like the Symbol development.  It is kinda ugly (Rotterdam in the 80’s) but actually looks like a light industrial building which I think is a nice nod to the neighborhood.

I really like it, though I was also thinking Rotterdam.  I imagine there are more accents coming.

It seems like every day a new apartment building is announced (yesterday it was a mixed use building at the intersection of Forest Hill and Westover Hills Parkway...with a second location for Veil as a tenant!).   This is a good size for this area (there is a rendering of the proposed building in the article).  I really want the Broad and Boulevard intersection to become super packed in.  Looks like it won’t be long.

Just thought I'd post a rendering of the proposal here:

Not sure if you guys have seen this yet, but according to the ScottsAddition instagram, work is underway on a Scott’s Addition walkway connected all the way to the science museum! I love the “Like our own version of NYC’s high line.”B739D748-D180-4A0D-A608-8B6FB6EB9C3D.thumb.png.45b4774d8e0657531f07a8b52bbf0f92.png

I really like this!  I hate that we didn’t know about it until now, but anytime a city can create cool walkable spaces like this it makes a place more attractive and livable. This is awesome!

Would love to see the overall plan and some more photos too!

We knew about this project right?  Maybe?  Unfortunately, it’s another Walter Parks design, but it looks good for density:

Summit Apts at 3022 W Broad St.

3022 W Broad St Richmond, VA

Breaks ground this Fall (October) and will include 166 mostly 1-bedroom apts, on-site parking, but maybe not enough for all units?

I like that the developer is the same as the City Center development on Marshall in Jackson Ward because they seem to have their crap together. I feel like they don't make announcements and then let things sit idly for months.  Realizing sometimes delays are unavoidable, I am optimistic about this.

Good to see some movement on this, but it’s weird there is no tower crane.  Surely there will be one...right?!

Thanks for posting the pic!!

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

I would not be surprised if there will be no tower crane for this development.  The podium will be cast in place with possibly stick frame above.  Hopefully I am wrong.
