If you know Structura, then chances are you mainly associate us with work in the DC and Baltimore metro areas. We’ve also been active in the Richmond area with over a dozen completed developments in recent years. Couple our experience with several new Richmond projects on the boards, including the new 400 Hull Street mixed-use development, we decided to expand southward and take office space in Scott’s Addition.
Structura’s design experience in Richmond has centered on multi-family residential developments, both new and existing. This includes adaptive reuse industrial-to-apartments conversions such as the Lofts at Canal Walk and Cold Storage Lofts in Shockoe Bottom, along with new construction at near VCU’s campus (611 and 725 West Cary Street) and the recently completed Overview Apartments.
Jeff Overmiller, Senior Principal, feels that the expansion to Richmond was a natural move, perhaps even overdue. “We’ve been doing work in Richmond for a long time and have always felt like we were a good fit for the market. It was not until recently that it became clear to us, crystal clear as a matter of fact, that we needed to have a permanent presence in the city and hopefully contribute to Richmond’s resurgence.”
Currently, Structura is looking to build upon mixed-use multifamily experience and branch out into our other active markets including senior living, higher/secondary education, commercial office, and retail. Richmond’s expansive supply of existing buildings, including both industrial and historic structures, gives us the opportunity to expand our Rehabilitation services which are active in the DC/Baltimore areas and beyond.
