VCU’s Plans for Ukrops


I couldn’t make it to the VCU presentation about their plans for the old Ukrops at Harrison and Grace. But here’s a great summary from Richmond BizSense.

The gist:

It will probably be another six to eight months before the university begins to make use of the property, according to [University spokesman] Ohlinger. “We need classrooms in the 60 to 80 seat range; the property provides space for about six of those. The second half of the store can be used for book storage, which would free up space in the library that they could use to convert to more technology use,” Ohlinger said. Ohlinger also said the university plans to make use of the parking lot once the current lease is terminated.
