The RTD is reporting that an announcement is close on plans to redevelop North Boulevard and Shockoe Bottom:

Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones is preparing to propose private development of a baseball stadium in Shockoe Bottom, according to sources who witnessed a presentation by the mayor and city officials to a small group of business leaders last week.

Jones was accompanied at the private meeting in downtown Richmond on Wednesday by Chief Administrative Officer Byron C. Marshall, the city’s financial consultant and an architectural firm that provided renderings of what the stadium would look like as part of a mixed-use development in the Bottom.
