A Richmond BizSense profile on UrbanCore Development drops this nugget about their commercial space recently for rent on Venable Street:
One of those projects includes renovating the 4,000-square-foot building at 2025 Venable St. in Church Hill. UrbanCore will create a 1,400-square-foot commercial space downstairs and three 800-square-foot apartment units above.
Drew Dayberry of Roaringpines.com, a retailer of American manufactured products, will set up shop in the space by this June. Beach said it will be designed as a 1950s general store.
Roaring Pines is self-described as an “American Merchant And Manufacturing Advocate”, and currently offer online sales of goods such as brooms, balsa airplanes, journals, frisbees, extension cords, dustpans, and more.
The storefront is catty-corner from the former Runway Couture, who apparently ran into zoning issues offering retail at that commercial corner location.
