Manchester Boom Continues: Two Five-Story Buildings Planned For Hull Street

The building boom continues in Manchester. Lynx Ventures announced in a Richmond Times-Dispatch article that they plan to build two five-story apartment and office buildings on the parking lot at 4th and Hull Streets.

Here is what the Richmond Times-Dispatch had to say:

“Construction would begin this fall on the development, called The Current, which would include a 214-unit apartment building and a 50,000-square-foot office building. The street level would be reserved for retail, restaurants and similar uses.

The $50 million to $60 million development would take about 20 months to complete.

The 260,000-square-foot mixed-use project would take up the block bounded by Hull, East Fourth, East Fifth and Decatur streets on a surface parking lot that is used for those visiting Plant Zero.”

  1. I wonder if any of the apartment are going to be wheelchair accessible. Roll in showers…roll under sinks..etc. Richmond really lacks in affordable housing for those who want to have independent lives who are paraplegic. Just wondering.

    1. That kind of change doesn’t happen overnight but it’s going to occur. But even better than it becoming the next Carytown or replacing it, I’d like to see it become a reflection of the economic and cultural diversity of the Southside, complete with jazz/blues clubs, authentic latin restaurants/cantinas, Southern-fusion restaurants, and amazing brewpubs. And yes, a grocery store please.

    2. A lot of those store fronts need a lot of TLC and with no other booming businesses around right now, investors are hesitant. Also, Carytown traffic is better because Cary is one way. Better for pedestrian shopping

  2. RVA want Manchester to be the Brooklyn of Richmond. Pay astronomical prices for the view of “the skyline” and you still have to go across the bridge for everything! Now if they made every new higher rise have retail /restaurant space below, so you could/have more reason to walk more, it would be better.
