Scott's Addition Development

Recommended Posts


Overall I like it and the ground floor of both, look fairly decent.  I am a bit confused by the Broad St side of the old hotel, though.  What's going on with the windows?

Yeah, I couldn't understand that either.  It looks to have more glass infill, which will be nice, a green atrium (?) looking thing, and then some colorful "Phillip Morris boxes"on the ends.   See, I did it again, looks like something else.

The Density is good but the architecture is bad, no? I was hoping for a better re-skin of the hotel and that roofline on the new one feels dated or wonky or something.

Also, was the article more specific about when construction would begin?  I just got that it was later this year (pretty ambiguous).

The 12 story apartment starts this summer completed by early 2022. The existing hotel conversion is by spring 2021, gutting already underway.

The green boxes represent a retail expansion added to the existing hotel bringing it closer to broad street, gets rid of the set back,  that's nice.  Hard to tell what the green box is really.  It's like they looked around and said,  well, there's the old CBS 6 building, a Maaco car repair, a pool hall, better make this new stuff just blend in.  Maybe I'm being too harsh trying to be funny, it has potential, renderings give little to go on though.

The green part is probably just filler to show how the 12 story addition fits in.  These drawings are all about the addition, the level of detail on that is different than on the existing hotel part.  Seems to me we aren’t supposed to pay attention to the old hotel at all.  It’s just there to show where the 12 story part goes. Somewhere there’s a more detailed drawing of the proposed renovation.  These aren’t it .

True and agree, they could have just done a wireframe or rectangles but opted to show some detail for whatever reason.

Philly and their Wendy's sign.  Richmond and their Phillip Morris sign.  Love it!

Henrico based Developer, Capital Square, is planning 3 new apartment complexes in Scott's Addition totaling 390 units and a $82 million investment in the neighborhood.

Scott's Collection 1:  5 - story, 75,000 sf building at 3000-3008 W Clay St with 80 units.  Construction expected to start in 2020.

Scott's Collection 2:  5 -story, 65,000 sf building at 2900 W Clay St with 60 units.  Expected to start at the same time as Scott's Collection 1.

Scott's Collection 3: 220-250 units at 2911 W Moore St, but no mention on size/height.

The article also mentions the neighborhood has 97.6% occupancy rate for apartments and generating a 8.1% year-over-year rental rate increase.

12- story building has been nixed.  Instead they are under contract for 3001-3008 Leigh to build a 5-story 72-unit building.

If you haven't driving down Belleville Street in a while, the area is busy with construction.  The Food Hall and the Winery are quickly being built.  Scott's View has rented out space for a Market facing Roseneath and leased out another space closer to Belleville.   Star Hill is very popular and Christie's Fine Gardening has built a small pocket park that is open to the public.

Side note:  The industrial area between the train tracks and the Baseball stadium is beginning to see a lot of interest from developers.   If the area ever gets redeveloped, they should really think about connecting Roseneath over to Ellen. That'd give it direct access to Robin Hood and take some of the traffic off of Boulevard.
