Before the Blue Wheeler, there was Fine’s. Anybody remember this or have time period?
I came across these very old pictures of the former Blue Wheeler the other day that are pretty cool!
Long before my time, but looks like a great place to get food poisoning….
Is work being done to renovate the Wheeler? Those windows are newer than that sign exposed by the exterior veneer/sheathing being removed. Any update on what the future holds for this site?
Has this building been sold………..yet?
@BAF I don’t know about great–but I’m sure it’s fine.
@Kathi – what’s the source of those photos? I’d love to see them better
@Dave @Chris – The property sold on 12/27/2016, is now owned by Blue Whaler LLC http://eservices.ci.richmond.va.us/applications/PropertySearch/Detail.aspx?pin=E0000730010
It is my understanding that the building will be completely renovated, and that the bottom floor will still be commercial space of some kind.
Thanks for the update John.
Land value was estimated to be 83k?
Perhaps a connection to Fine Foods in Oregon Hill?
