New grocery store could break ground by summer, open in 2018

Tammie Smith at richmond.com has a great overview of the background and status of our new grocery store:

Scanlon, a former executive at Ukrop’s Super Markets and Martin’s Food Markets, opened Jim’s Local Market in Newport News in May in an area of the city that did not have a full-service supermarket. He is planning to open a similar store in Richmond’s grocery store-starved East End community.

[…]

“We are talking about a full-service grocery store that our community will have access to, with pharmacy, banking, the full array of produce, prepared foods,” [Cynthia Newbille] said. “But equally as important is the opportunity for this to be a source of employment and training for residents in the community. … I am absolutely excited for our community.”

[…]

One of those people who have signed on to Scanlon’s vision is Steven A. Markel, vice chairman of Henrico-based specialty insurer Markel Corp. Markel is personally backing the proposed development in Richmond’s East End where Jim’s Local Market will be located. The grocery store is proposed for a two-block site at North 24th and North 25th streets and Nine Mile Road. A second site between North 25th and North 26th streets along Nine Mile Road also is part of the project.

The attached J. Sargeant Reynolds Culinary School project will be exciting piece unto itself. While the the design is not yet finalized enough to have a rendering to share, the architect is Chris McVoy, a partner with Steven Holl – who was the lead architect in designing the VCU Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) on Belvidere and Broad.
