GLEN ALLEN, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – Another Big Apple buyer has poured its money into Richmond real estate.

New York-based Katz Properties earlier this month acquired nearly 66,000 square feet of retail space at the Town Center at Twin Hickory on Nuckols Road in Glen Allen. The $16 million purchase Katz’s first push into the Richmond market as the northeastern firm looks south.
