Manstruction Continues

We did both a walking and biking tour of Manchester this weekend. While we took in the sites, we snapped a few construction pictures from throughout the neighborhood. The pace of the development in Manchester shows no sign of slowing down.

The bulk of the construction is spread throughout the industrial sector, the residential area west of Hull, and along the Hull Street business corridor as far south as 14th Street.

Conversely, there is little to no market rate private sector development east of Hull Street. I wonder how long it will take for that artificial line to be bridged. It seems awfully reminiscent of the early re-development in Church Hill when the bulk of the initial renovation work was done south of Broad, and very little work was done north of Broad Street. That has changed as the renovation in Church Hill has spread north of that artificial line at Broad and well into Union Hill. I suspect renovation in Manchester east of Hull will play out in a similar fashion.

Also of note, Charlie Westbrook’s art gallery at 1309 Hull Street seems to be coming together. The sign on the front door lists the name of the gallery as Manchester Contemporary.

    1. A full size grocery store is needed,this area has to be one of the most congested areas in Richmond without a full service grocery store/bakery. From what I understand the Butterbean market will serve its purpose,but the area needs alot more. What’s going on with this so called regional “Grocery Wars” that we’ve been reading about?.

  1. I’m impressed with this construction.. looks good and beefy.. all the other hi-rises look like twigs and cardboard. They’ll be outdated and falling apart in a decade.
