RICHMOND, Va. — The downtown skyline may soon get a jolt from one of Richmond’s biggest corporations. Dominion Resources is planning to demolish the vacant Richmond Plaza building at 111 S. Sixth St. as part of a broader plan by the company to reconfigure and upgrade its downtown real estate holdings.

The specs of the structure that might be built in place of the aging, six-story 269,000-square-foot building are still being determined, said Carter Reid, Dominion’s chief administrative officer and chief compliance officer.

“One thing we do know is that when we do build, it will be a significant structure,” Reid said.

She said the building would likely be demolished within a year.
