Grocery store construction to start this fall

Leah Small at Richmond Magazine has a good overview of the new grocery store development:

But access and upward mobility are goals of a new plan: A proposed mixed-use development could bring a full-service grocery store, the J. Sargeant Reynolds’ culinary arts program, apartments and retail space to the neighborhood. Construction of The Church Hill North Retail Center is scheduled to begin this fall at Nine Mile Road, Fairmount Avenue and North 25th and 24th streets, with completion estimated near the end of 2018. It’s a food-centric infusion of job training and commerce that could give north Church Hill an economic kick start. It’s not so much a money-making opportunity as a chance to help alleviate poverty in the region, according to the project’s financial backer, Steven A. Markel, the vice chairman of the Henrico-based specialty insurer Markel Corp.
