Development in Richmond’s Manchester District continues at a rapid pace. With our work in this district as a prime example, much of the construction in Manchester is centered around multi-residential opportunities. However, this part of Richmond also gives of two of our most unique non-residential projects – a recovery center and a medical cannabidiol processing facility – separated by only a few blocks.
Here is a snapshot of our five major construction projects in Manchester:
A dilapidated cigarette manufacturing facility on Stockton Street is being rehabilitated into a 151,292-square-foot recovery center for the homeless and people recovering from addition. The center will have 160 beds for women enrolled in the CARITAS Healing Place for Women, a substance abuse recovery program. The complex also will have 47 sober-living apartments for people transitioning from the substance abuse recovery program.
The Current adds 320,000 square feet of new construction to 400 Hull Street, next to the Plant Zero arts center. The project is made up of a five-story, 215-unit apartment building which surrounds a 323-space parking garage and an adjacent six-story, 69,000 square foot office building. The ground level incorporates restaurant/retail spaces adjacent to a pool courtyard.
Green Leaf Medical
Green Leaf Medical of Virginia is building one of only five medical cannabidiol processing operations in Virginia. Located on Decatur Street, the 81,880-square-foot facility is being built under a fast track schedule to have the first phase operational by the end of 2019. The facility will produce medical cannabis-based capsules, tinctures and vaporization products that will require a prescription for purchase.
At the intersection of Cowardin and Semmes avenues, Alabama-based LIV Development is putting up 324,000 square feet with 269 units. The development consists of three four-story apartment buildings with surface parking and three three-story townhouse-style buildings with garages on lower levels and panoramic views of Oregon Hill and downtown.
This 14-story high-rise apartment tower at 111 Hull Street will have 256 units, ground-level retail space and 279 parking spaces. Located between the James River flood wall and the Manchester Canal, the 224,968-square-foot development will be a definitive component of Richmond’s southside skyline.
