The Source for Richmond Architecture and Design Information


As winter draws to a close, so do a series of projects under construction around central Richmond. From downtown towers to residential infill, they run the gamut of scales and uses. The face of Richmond is changing, perhaps more rapidly than usual, as the back-to-the-city movement happening all across America outlasts its detractors.

In this installment of Under Construction, the third in the series, we bring you a sampling of projects underway in the city. Some are nearly finished, like Dominion Energy’s new office tower, Canal Place, designed by Pickard Chilton in association with Kendall/Heaton Architects. The new American Civil War Museum, designed by 3 North Architects, is also near completion. Others, including Perretz & Young Architects’ new infill project in the Fan District, are in their early stages. With many more buildings on the way in Manchester, Scott’s Addition, and other neighborhoods throughout the city, this portfolio of images presents only a slice of how our Richmond is transforming.
