Netherwoods renovations taking shape on O Street

Jonathan Spiers has a good follow-up on the renovations underway on the 2500 block of O Street for Richmond BizSense:

The general store addition along 26th Street is also extending the building’s granite foundation – a notable hallmark of the original builder, English immigrant James Netherwood. Netherwood’s work with granite in the 19th century can be seen in Richmond landmarks like the Robert E. Lee monument on Monument Avenue, the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors monument at the top of Libby Hill and the Old City Hall building – the largest granite building in Richmond.

The project will restore seven rowhouses and a former store and will add on a new home. Rendering courtesy of Denworth Restoration Associates.

Lewis, the developer and builder on the project, said Netherwood built the stretch of Church Hill homes for his workers, according to research she’s conducted on the property. And her property is near another Netherwood rowhouse project along the 26th block of East Broad Street that Lewis said is known as the “main Netherwood block.”

Lewis will be talking about the project for HRF’s Quoit Club tonight from 6 – 8 PM on location at the 2500 block of O Street.

“And her property is near another Netherwood rowhouse project along the 26th block of East Broad Street that Lewis said is known as the “main Netherwood block.” ”

Actually it’s the Mann-Netherwood block, so named because it was the houses were built by partners John Mann and James Netherwood.
