Church reveals plans to build Mormon temple in Henrico

Church leaders broke ground last week on a new temple in Pocatello, Idaho. While the design for Richmond’s temple will not be exactly like the rendering, it would include elements of the building such as the steeple. (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints)

GLEN ALLEN, Va. — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints last week filed preliminary plans to construct a temple near the intersection of Staples Mill and Mountain roads in Henrico County – its first temple in Virginia.

Plans call for an 11-acre wooded lot at 10915 Staples Mill Road to be scrapped to make way for a two-story, 36,200-square-foot temple and an adjacent 16,200-square-foot meeting house. A small maintenance building also is proposed for the site, while an existing two-story residence at 4151 Mountain Road would remain.

The site will not require rezoning.
