Pear Street project moving forward as five stories

February 7, 2017 8:42 am by

A rezoning of the lot at 2801 East Main Street from the M-1 Light Industrial District to the B-5 Central Business District (which had been on and off the Planning Commission agenda for at least a year) was approved by the Commission yesterday.

From Ned Oliver at richmond.com:

A Richmond condo project at the base of Libby Hill initially pitched as being 13 to 16 stories tall advanced in a considerably shortened form Monday. The Richmond Planning Commission recommended approval of a zoning change that will allow the developers to construct a building for commercial or residential use that is no higher than five stories on the property at 2801 E. Main St. at the end of Tobacco Row.

The developers had originally sought a Special Use Permit to allow a 16-story building, which met vigorous opposition.
