Thalhimer Realty Partners announced a $25 Million City View Marketplace development in Manchester that will consist of 5 different buildings and 161 apartments. The first floors will also offer 13,270 square feet of retail and restaurant space.
Perhaps most interesting of all is what they are not building in an attempt to leave space available for a potential future grocer. Here is what Drew Wiltshire said in yesterday’s Richmond Times Dispatch article:
“We feel like a grocer would be the anchor. We are talking to grocers right now. We believe it will come to fruition. We feel providing more rooftops will prove the case for more retail. The more apartments to come, the more demand there will be for a grocery store. We want retail there and we think it will serve our residents.”
