Zimmer is seeking a combination of residential and commercial zoning designations for the three parcels that make up the site along Old Osborne Turnpike (Route 5), Orleans Street and Nicholson Street from railroad giant CSX.
Where is Fulton Yard going to be?
Fulton Yard is a a mixed-use development between historic Fulton Hill and the James River, here in Richmond, VA. Per the website:
Named after one of Richmond’s largest rail yards, these three unique sites will consist of retail, office and residential space. With direct access to the James River and the Virginia Capital Trail, the development will be geared toward active residents. Bike and watercraft storage, a pool and game courts will be available to residents, along with stunning views of the James River from the roof deck. Public art and train trestle improvements will pay tribute to the historic Fulton neighborhood.
When will construction start?
Construction will start mid year 2020.
This is looking like a huge project. Fulton has had some projects in the past, with Stone Brewing Co being one of the bigger investments in the area. The question now is how will the neighborhood change with such a large presence. We will reach out to the planners and do an update as soon as we can.
