No rendering. A successful rezoning application last year alluded to it in application materials. There will be an internal street between the 2 buildings along the old Denny St ROW and include some retail component.  Discussion is on this thread back some pages. 

So being an internal street, it will run east from  Main Street and will dead end at the railroad tracks? Looks like where the original Denny Street was, the tracks (elevated) crossed over a small trestle and Denny went under the train tracks.

@I miss RVA @whw53 Interesting. Thanks for the info. I could see it starting right after Block 8 is finished since it's already fenced off, but I could also see it being on hold until after Fulton Yard A is finished. Fulton Yard A is such a weird sliver of land right behind both of them. I'm curious what business will go there. 

Block 8 is also now listed as The Waterford on apartments.com. https://www.apartments.com/the-waterford-richmond-va/1c33vv6/

Interesting that apartments . com already is marketing the building when it's far from complete. In looking through their web page, I noticed a rather glaring gross factual error -- they list the neighborhood as "Shockoe Bottom" - and, of course, 4400 E. Main is NOT in Shockoe Bottom. I wonder if they'd correct it if someone notified them that the neighborhood is Rockett's/Fulton, which is EAST of Shockoe Bottom?

Those properties are different developers so they may end up being built concurrently.  The plan for the sliver is surface parking along the slim stretch with an office building fronting Nicholson.

Drove by Rocketts Landing yesterday, the latest section that had 4(?) new buildings is about done with people already living inn3 of them and final stages of construction on the last one. Looks like Rockett's is done or full after this, don't see how they have any more room to expand down the river with those storage tanks still there. Of course developers probably itching to replace that warehouse in the front that is now wildly out of place. Funny that business just keeps on kicking, wonder if they are stubborn or just waiting for the price to keep going up even more.

That's the one on Orleans, across the street from the PULSE station?

Yes

Does make one wonder if they're holding out for top dollar, given that they're smack in between the "established" bulk of Rockett's immediately to the south - and the new huge apartment building (Block 8) with another one (Block 6) on the way immediately to their north. Didn't the parcels to their east sell? (Not sure if that was included in anything connected with Fulton Yards or not - I just seem to recall that it sold at some point...)

There is some land where the sales trailer is located that was originally slated for medical offices or similar.  The lot East of Cedar Works is also intended for development as well as the lot next to the Pulse Station.  The warehouse has never been included in the master plan, but then again neither was the blue warehouse that was demoed years ago for the first apartment building.  In addition to Blocks 6 & 8, Rocketts also includes some land along the River in the city limits for development (marketing is out there) as well as office/restaurant sites along the Henrico riverfront.  Recently they converted the commercial frontage of the first apartment block (East 51 - Phase 1) into additional apartments and the newer apartment building's (East 51 - Capital Trail Building) commercial space is in the process of being split for what must be an new tenant.

‘On the consent agenda for the 6 p.m. regular meeting agenda is a request from an LLC tied to Harlan Construction to conditionally rezone a 0.6-acre property at 501 Orleans St. and 4811 S. 37th St., near Rocketts Landing, from light industrial use to the B-5 Central Business District to allow for a four-story mixed-use building with ground floor office use and 21 residential dwelling units.’

Construction firm building new HQ, 26 apartments near Rocketts Landing - Richmond BizSense

Nice to see development spreading north to Williamsburg Ave.  

It's a really neat project! Really glad Harlan is setting up shop in Richmond. For anyone who grew up in metro Richmond over the past 50 years, seeing the Harlan name on construction equipment, dump trucks, etc., was commonplace. Love this building - a great add for that parcel in Fulton/Rockett's.
