RICHMOND, Va. ( – A Midlothian developer with big plans for the corner of Broad and Boulevard has expanded its holdings in the area.

The Rebkee Company on Dec. 21 bought the shuttered Bill’s Barbecue at 927 Myers St. for $775,000. The property is 1.3 acres and abuts the former Interbake cookie factory, which the developer plans to transform into 178 apartments.
