Richmond BizSense has a look at VCU’s $83,000,000 plans for Grace between Belvidere and Ryland.
In addition to the private development at Grace and Shafer, VCU has a project underway on the 900 block of Grace Street and few others planned for the near future:
The school is also planning two student housing buildings at the old Ukrop’s store site at 1024 W. Grace St. VCU wants a 250-bed building and a 150-bed building on the 2.4-acre parcel at a combined cost of about $36 million.
At 920 W. Grace St., a vacant 2,800-square-foot retail space that once housed a Little Ceasars Pizza is slated to become a VCU-run computer store. The school had a technology shop in the student commons that sold computer equipment and software, but it closed a few years, Ohlinger said.
