Diamond Area/Hermitage Rd Corridor/Ownby District

Maybe it’s for a bigger-than-originally-planned Athletic Village.  Would a larger baseball stadium require more space...especially, if Richmond lands the Nat’s AAA team later (requiring seating of at least 10K)?  Just a thought I had.

Let's hope!

Update from BizSense on the Spy Rock projects at Overbrook & Ownby, Looks like the piece directly across from Hardywood at the SE corner of Overbrook and Ownby will be for sale stacked units, similar to the piece south of HW, instead of an apartment building. For the large 1601 piece they picked up on the demo plans as well - expiration date for the original demolition permit is June so should see some action there soon.

Good first step from the city. Very preliminary but at least it signals progress. Aside from prepping for the RFP it also starts the dialogue with surrounding property owners.

I'm glad city is moving forward with this instead of thinking they needed to go back and tackle Carver/broad rezoning first. Hopefully both can move forward in first half of this year.

Agree, always nice to see progress, but feels like dirt won't turn on the city-owned parcel until  Q3/Q4 of 2022. 

First pitch at a new squirrels/VCU stadium won't happen before 2024.

This week's private sector driven TOD-1 rezoning takes the Cobb Lumber site from M-1 heavy industrial to our favorite transit oriented designation. It also includes the neighboring property controlled by the city for their ambulatory services. Curious as to why public parcel is included...maybe city saw opportunity to attach this adjacent parcel to private initiative or maybe private actor doing city a favor OR needs that parcel to be TOD-1 as well due to limitations that sometimes occur when differing zoning classes abut each other? Anyhow, I imagine any associated plans stemming from this are for the Cobb Lumber site - not the city parcel.
