The once sleepy, industrial neighborhood is on fire as new residents, breweries, and restaurants move in with a vengeance.
Developers have swooped into Scott’s Addition, bringing a second wave of vibrancy to this once-sleepy section of Richmond.
Most people didn’t know much about this industrial area until the machinations of developer Justin French came to light in 2010 for grossly inflating the amount of historic tax credits on two partially finished warehouse buildings.
For all his misguided actions, the crook was on to something.
Scott’s Addition was on the verge of a renaissance.
There’s certainly no shortage of new projects–breweries, apartments, restaurants, and more–that have recently been announced, have recently opened, or are on the way soon. Check out the list the RTD compiled here.
