Westhampton Theater project approved by city council

Changes made, tenants booked, and moving ahead.

Back in January the last curtain call for Westhampton Theater was announced. Concerns were raised and alternative plans proposed. On Monday the City Council approved plans on the project. During the meeting 11 spoke against the project and 8 in favor.

Richmond BizSense has the summation of the changes and in the full article quotes from those opposed.

The plans approved Monday are a scaled-back version of what Guillot and Cametas initially proposed after buying the theater building in 2014. They tweaked the design from four stories to three; dropped the height from 60 feet to below 40 feet; decreased the total size from 85,000 square feet to 49,800 square feet; and switched from nine condos to 12 apartments. Restaurant chains Taste Unlimited and Tazza Kitchen will be tenants, as well as Mango Salon and Long & Foster.
