Wow. 0 setback. Mixed-use. Parking behind the building. I am pleasantly shocked.

Whoever is putting this up gets it. Let him put up as may of these as he wants on Upper James and streets like it.

So good! I would assume the residential would be rentals not owned but is there any way to know at this point?

Really happy about this one. The house that currently sits on the property hasn't been occupied in almost 5 years. The previous owners didn't do anything with it. Happy to see it redeveloped as it had a weird haunted mansion vibe going on.

Thread title needs to be updated. This isn't a 6 storey project anymore, it's a 2 storey commercial development.



Not-excellent progress photos from the bus this eve:

Apologies for the state of these pictures, they were taken out of a filthy bus window on Jan 8th. But an update nonetheless...

I'm just wondering if the site map says 2 floors, and our forum title for this project says 6, am I missing something? Thx

Too bad this got severely downgraded from the original plans. A 6 story would have looked a lot better.

Well ... no question that natural gas is being used extensively. Hard to believe that was the only solution.

It's interesting looking - and doesn't look too out of place with the building next door to it - I kinda like it

The wood trim really completes it.

No electrical for Box signs, that's encouraging , I like the stone work, Cut Channel letters or even peds in the landscaping would be great alternative
