We were part of an ownership group and we provided everything for the group including investing, developing and construction. This was an adaptive reuse, tax credit renovation that completely restored all aspects of the building inside and out resulting in vibrant space for workers and socializers alike.
The building was a dilapidated gas station when Bon Secours purchased it in 2014. We completed an adaptive reuse of 3,000 square feet and added an additional 1,900 square feet to the rear, creating a community commercial kitchen, conference room and coffee shop. We even repurposed the gas station canopy to provide outdoor seating and shade.
Guiding the owner through all stages of development, we combined two adjoining buildings, providing four openings within a 12” masonry wall to connect the two. This three-story building features two commercial spaces and nine residential units. A unique element is the 2,500 square foot, rooftop, two-tier deck that has great view of the Richmond skyline.
