City Council sets a new date to consider the high-rise proposal

Vote will take place at the next scheduled City Council meeting on June 9.

The Richmond City Council will vote on the controversial condominium proposal next Monday, June 9. 180RVA updated their Facebook page with the following announcement:

COUNCIL MEETING UPDATE: The new date for the decision on the developer’s proposal is now set for:

Monday, June 9th – 6.00pm at City Hall – 900 E. Broad St. in the Council Chambers, 2nd Floor

Please turn up in force – We need all our supporters to come to City Council to show that the citizens are angry to see this proposal before them – it’s just not right !

Please wear something GREEN so they can see we are united – Your presence will make a difference!

The sixteen-story (thirteen would be visible above ground) high-rise that has been proposed has been attacked, in part, due to it’s height.

However, in April, developer David White told Richmond BizSense that the height was “nonnegotiable”:

“I can’t make the numbers work,” White said. “The only way I can afford to build this building is to get the money from the height.”
