Richmond BizSense takes a look at the recent rezoning in Union Hill and the potential impact on neighborhood businesses:

“This is a real breakthrough for the city to take an entire neighborhood and say, ‘We think the new urban model is a return to what worked 100 years ago,’ where you have business and residential on the same street,” Conrad said.

Conrad said he believes the new zoning will accelerate the neighborhood’s recovery. “In the last 20 years, young people who love the urban lifestyle have been renovating gorgeous homes in hopes that the neighborhood in the future will look the way it did in the 1870s,” said Conrad.
