A casual walk along the James River at Rocketts Landing reveals the former steel manufacturing facility behind the community pool.

Commercial Property #17 – Former Steel Manufacturing Facility

The shell of this 19th-century steel manufacturing facility is just waiting for a visionary business to breathe new life into its beams.

This 19th-century former steel facility is ready for new life along the James River.

Sitting on the east side of our community, this 16,000-square-foot building opportunity nestles between the Virginia Capital Trail and the James River — offering amazing river proximity. In fact, we maintained this structure because today’s building codes otherwise wouldn’t allow you to build so close to the river. Fortunately, our historic facility isn’t bound to these requirements, allowing you to create a stellar riverfront building in downtown Richmond.

 An inspiring riverfront view awaits the right business at Block #17 at Rocketts Landing.

The structure offers you the ability to custom-build a two-story office space that uses the foundation’s existing structure. And you can even design direct river access for your employees and guests.

  • Purchase type: Sale or lease
  • Cost: $850,000
  • Estimated build date: Possible 2018 start

Commercial Property #19 – New Development

 For an organization looking to wow its employees and guests, we have just the location for you. A rendering of the design potential Block #19 offers along the James River.

The possible two-story concept gives you unprecedented riverfront views with a stunning (up to) 21,000 square feet of space. Plus, the location is directly along the Virginia Capital Trail, offering you beautiful commutes and rejuvenating breaks from work.

With modern architectural features, quality building materials, and plenty of space to call your own, #19 is a must-have riverfront opportunity you won’t find elsewhere in Richmond.

  • Cost: $1.3 million
  • Estimated build date: Possible 2018 start
