O Street properties now for sale

The legal issues that halted the promising renovation of an entire side of the 2500 block of O Street (originally slated for summer 2014) have been settled, with the remaining unfinished properties now for sale as-is:

John and Benedicte Whitworth, who own Deworth Restoration Associates LLC, are pleased to announce that the Deworth properties on O Street, in Historic Church Hill, in Richmond, Virginia are now available for sale and development.

O Street and the Deworth properties on it are integral to the Church Hill community and the Whitworths are excited to resume their efforts to bring about the revitalization of this block in both theirs and the community’s best interest and purpose.

The original plan called for the redevelopment of the 8 attached houses along O Street, and the building at the corner of 25th and O Streets. The house at 26th and O was finished and sold before disagreements between the partners brought work to a halt in late 2015.

So are the Whitworth’s going to be the developers or are they looking to sell the block to a new developer?

Trying to sell the block. You want it? 🙂

Glad invested on the next block 5 years ago. Time to sell when these get finished!

If I had both the money and knew anything about rehabbing or developing I would. Honestly–and ironically–I would probably bring in Deanna Lewis if I did. I hope that whoever buys it sticks with the vision that was originally proposed for the property.

John Whitworth is a proponent of proper restorations and the statement above says that they will “resume the efforts” and “to bring about the revitalization of this block in both theirs and the community’s best interest and purpose.” leads me to think they will be making sure the right people will be in place to continue on? At least that is how I read it.

This was called the Netherwood Project because they were constructed for the workers at the Netherwood stone quarry, and the store for their use. Some sources say James Netherwood while others sources show Alvin Netherwood owned the quarry, which supplied the stones for the old gothic style City Hall on Broad Street.
