One day this building will be used for something new

Richmond BizSense has word that the Armitage Building has changed hands and the new owners are considering developing the property:

The Wilton Companies acquired the Armitage Building at 3200 Williamsburg Ave. in Church Hill, just downhill from Chimbarazo Park, according to Wilton Companies CEO Rich Johnson. The deal closed in March, Johnson said, as a result of Wilton purchasing the company that owned the 150,000-square-foot building.

Johnson said no other real estate assets were involved in the deal and would not discuss the financial terms. Because the transaction involved transfer of the company, rather than the real estate itself, the sale and sales price were not recorded in city property records.

History Replays Today has a history of the building and the Armitage Manufacturing Company:

The section of the building that faces Williamsburg Ave is the oldest part of the building and was built in 1900 to replace the original building that burned. The property was bought and developed by the Armitage Manufacturing Company from George T. King who ran the adjacent Richmond City Mill. The Armitage Manufacturing Co. made building materials including tarred felt, oil, black varnish roofing papers, paints, and 2 &3 ply roofs from the coal-tar by product from Fulton Gas Works across the avenue.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in July, 2012 (PDF).

[…] working it’s way through the system and a set of new homes for sale (BELOW), and word that the Armitage building has been sold again, it definitely looks like a new day for scruffy ol’ Sugar […]
