The Manchester cidery will make the move to Scott’s Addition once renovations on the former City Stables are complete.
After years of competition over the old city stables property, the winning bidder’s plans for an urban cidery in Scott’s Addition are beginning to take shape.
Now home to odds and ends stored by Richmond’s parks department, the largely abandoned stone complex at West Clay Street and Summit Avenue will hold a cider production lab, outdoor tasting and event space, and a small orchard, according to plans on file with the city.
Summit Stables LLC has agreed to pay $395,000 — the assessed value of the property — on behalf of Blue Bee Cider for the .35-acre site, records show.
