Not long before a Chipotle and a Panera invade. Enjoy Church Hill now while it lasts.

Love modern architecture; dislike the design for this neighborhood.

The current president of BHC sat in my living room during a meeting of Union Hill residents (discussing what the coalition had planned for our neighborhood) and told us straight up that its project along Venable and Jessamine Streets would be the last project that BHC would do in the city’s east end. This type of “misstatement” proved to be quite typical of BHC which, when called on such a “misstatement,” claimed never to have made the statement in the first place. My guess is that some BHC rep will claim, if asked, that certainly the coalition president never made… Read more »

@1 while i’d love both, i don’t see. Sure you have Jim’s and the J. Sarge project in the offing but what else? really need to 25th to densify at street level through there to give this some lift.

Glad they are for sale. Hope this allows more of our great young neighbors to buy homes and stay in the neighborhood.

WTF BHC???!!! While you were force-feeding the crappy Citadel of Hope project down our throats in Union Hill, you lied to us! Greta Harris, CEO of BHC was very clear when she said “our focus is no longer in the first time home buyer in the East End.” We begged and pleaded with BHC to have at least some element of home ownership in the Citadel/Venable Street project–much like Jefferson Mews. Instead, they insisted that 100% rental on the 52 apartments was the best they could do. Damn it! Take note fellow Richmonders–don’t trust anything BHC says during the course… Read more »

@5

why do you care if BHC is building single family homes in church hill?

Glad BHC is giving residents a chance to build equity with home ownership in this development! I wonder if they’ve gone to CAR with this design before having a potential buyer presentation? All these homes will be within the Church Hill North O&H District. It would be really disappointing to see BHC to repeat its mistake of not getting CAR input before investing in the design of new construction.

For what it’s worth, I believe the Beckstoffer’s development has been a long-term plan of BHC’s to occur over a longer period of time. If my memory serves me well, the overall development plan – which included plans for infill single-family development such as what is described above – is not fully built out. This article in the RTD from 2008 does a pretty good job of summarizing the entire multi-phase development and includes what I think is a reference to the units discussed in this most recent article on CHPN: http://www.richmond.com/business/new-life-in-church-hill/article_b48ccb3f-46eb-513e-b33e-d0928872f852.html Basically, I think it would be unfair to… Read more »

@10

it’s in a national historic district, but not a city old and historic district so I don’t think CAR has any real sway

@10
looks like its in the National historic district, but not the City’s. No CAR needed

Definitely different for the neighborhood, but I think will make an interesting addition and complete the look of the Beckstoffers development

@10 It looks like they will be north of the O&H district, but within the National Historic District. I believe that exempts them from CAR.

@12,13,14 Y’all are correct; apologies for my misreading.

#9 – I don’t if BHC is building single family homes in ‘church hill.’

I do care that BHC does not work well with residents, is aggressively authorotarian, and routinely tells people things that are not true.

Apparently these characteristics of the coalition don’t bother a lot of people.

Property rights are a wonderful thing. Stop trying to tell people how, when, and where to invest their money. For all of you that are against increasing the quality of housing, increasing the tax base, and preserving the poverty status of the area why not put your money where your moth is and buy up these properties and let them rot like so many other properties in the community. Then we will only have new apartment complexes that meet the whims of your height requirements, affordable housing that is only built if the developer installs every amenity your progressive heart… Read more »

@17…couldn’t say it better myself. If people want things their way, their money is the way to make it happen. It’s really pretty simple when it comes to how this should work. If the law permits it, then that’s it. If you need a variance, you have to jump through the hoops. Assuming BHC doesn’t need a variance, then drill, baby, drill. Reducing poverty and increasing individual equity in the neighborhood is a good thing, or so I always believed. And I, like @18-Mike, also like new houses. Well, even more broadly, I like things that improve the individual equity… Read more »
