Apparently Richmond’s moving up on the world stage- the French have called GRTC CEO John Lewis, Jr. and asked about buying their headquarters building. From today’s TD:

Lewis has regularly fielded calls from developers as far away as France since he became chief executive officer at GRTC Transit System two years ago.

Every developer wants to be first in line on the day GRTC decides to sell more than 6 acres of prime real estate it owns along West Cary Street near Richmond’s Fan District.

With this much interest in that site- the redevelopment is sure to be monumental.

The whole Cary St. corridor between Boulevard and Belvidere is changing, if you haven’t traveled that way recently, you should definitely check it out.

And 6 acres located a stone’s throw from Carytown, on the southern edge of the Fan, walking distance to Byrd Park- that’s a gold mine for any developer. Let’s hope someone good buys the site!
