RICHMOND, Va. — Scott’s Addition’s recent growth spurt has been fueled by apartments, office space and breweries. Now here come the restaurants.

Local restaurant brand Tazza Kitchen has preliminary plans to occupy about 3,800 square feet in the 106,000-square-foot building at 1500 Roseneath Road, confirmed John Haggai, one of the co-founders of the regional chain.

“The location most definitely fits our vibe,” Haggai said of Scott’s Addition. “Given what’s going on, we’d like to be down there.”

Haggai emphasized the plans are “very preliminary,” and are contingent upon city council’s approval – a measure that may occur in January 2017.

Thalhimer Realty Partners, the development arm of local real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer, bought 1500 Roseneath Road in March for $4.12 million. The building covers nearly an entire city block in Scott’s Addition and is bounded by Roseneath Road, and Moore and West Leigh streets.
