RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – There’s an addition to the VCU skyline in the works.
Phil Roper of Whittle-Roper Realtors and architect Walter Parks want to turn a block of stores at the intersection of Shafer and Grace streets into a 10-story, 155,000-square-foot student apartment tower.
“We’ve been trying to get this together for about six years,” Roper said. “It looks like it’s finally coming together.”
