First announced in June of 2014 and later derailed for a bit, the O Street redevelopment between 25th and 26th is now back on track for this coming summer. John & Bénédicte Whitworth are the developers, with architecture firm Architecture AF and contractor UrbanCore taking on the heavy lifting.
Press release on O Street from Andrea Levine of One South Realty Group:
Encompassing an entire block of O Street between 25th and 26th Streets, these townhomes are the newest development in the burgeoning Church Hill neighborhood. The O Street townhomes will combine the best of Richmond’s history with contemporary space planning and modern amenities. A new, ground up build bookends the existing seven meticulously restored and enlarged homes.
The townhomes, built in 1874, reflect Richmond’s history and Church Hill’s artisanal past. Developed by James Netherwood, the block was home to stone carvers, brick masons, engineers, lithographers, painters and a book binder. Netherwood – one of the largest granite suppliers on the East Coast – supplied the granite for Old City Hall, the Mann Netherwood block in historic Church Hill, and many of the statuary pedestals found throughout Richmond.
With 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, the original renovated houses range in size from 2,000 SF to 2,234 with prices starting in the mid $300’s. The new 2,466 SF townhome features 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and is priced in the low $400’s.
Each architect designed home features original, historic detailing, open modern floor plans, roof terraces, and finishes with today’s lifestyles in mind.
Completion is scheduled for early Summer 2018.
