Monroe Ward

@ I miss RVA

Totally get the heat humidity issues, used to live in New England and got used to cooler,  colder temperatures and less humid conditions. As my wife and I have aged, the heat effects us more, really slows us down.  I used to feel nothing when I was younger, loved summers, now it's like,  oh no, summer is here,  how long until fall.  When living away though,  I did really miss it here and was happy to come back, but could do without summers. My hope is to retire and summer back in New England, sooner than later please!

I think it's about time this area gets its own thread and I think the announcement of a 15'er today (pending a SUP) along Grace provides a good kick-off for this area. https://richmondbizsense.co

More detail and renderings revealed in Council introduction docs last night for Pinecrest Tower as project formally applies for SUP. Looks like project has added a floor from 15 to now 16 stories.

Guys - here's something to think about: I've been following Richmond's growth for about 50 years (yes, I was 8 years old and was already interested in what was happening and in love with the city

"On the Boards"  from Hays + Ewing Design Studio.   Seems to be the lot at the intersection of Main/Foushee based on the other buildings around it.

While not particularly tall, that certainly has some great density and would do wonders for returning foot-traffic to that block.  Height-wise, it looks to be on par with 8 1/2 Canal, which has some impact.

I would like to imagine that the little dude on the surface lot is planning out a future tower.

Nice find @rjp212!  - isnt this the same site as Eagle's Foushee Mews project though? Could this have been an alternative submission or maybe the project is back at the drawing boards? I swear i saw permit activity recently for this site though.

It most definitely is.  Perhaps they dropped a couple townhomes in favor of adding multi-unit housing in back?

A couple surface lots along Grace have hit the market. They are being marketed as development land. Note the parcel at 101 E Grace is contiguous with the midblock property at 109 E Grace that Thalhimer has expressed interest in re-developing (by removing the parking function in service to off site existing development).

Seller is Jim's Family Corporation. Both are currently being used as private paid parking lots and both are zoned B-4 Central Business.

This is definitely positive! Tag-teaming this parcel with the 109 E. Grace parcel perhaps portends some height and density down the road. The 109 E. Grace parcel and a third parcel across the street were request for removal of parking requirement at the same time as 321 W. Grace - where the new 15-story residential building will rise (behind the Berkshire). Let's hope a developer with big ideas about height and density swoops in, gobbles these up and is ready to roll with a new residential tower.

Awesome report Hike!  This is great news!  At least now we have somewhat of a timeline...and an extra floor!!

This is great news for Monroe Ward!  At least I'm seeing some effort to develop these empty parking lots!  Hopefully, this land sells quickly and development starts soon.  Would love to see a tall, nice-looking design.  B4 zoning is for really tall buildings, correct?  Thanks for posting!

Yes - no "hard" height restriction to buildings constructed in B4 zoned areas - just the city's 1:4 height-to-setback ratio, which quite honestly, I would like to see the city remove altogether - or at least modify to something a little more reasonable like 1:8 or higher.
