CP Other Realty LLC purchased the 1.68-acre site at 11950 West Broad St. in the Towne Center West development on behalf of Car Pool for $1.48 million from Kalyan Plaza at Short Pump LLC, according to public records. Actual construction costs for the car wash building and customer lounge total just under $634,000.
A new restaurant is coming to the same shopping center, just behind the Car Pool site, next to the Hilton Richmond Hotel & Spa. Osteria La Giara has leased space in the same building as Far East Bistro and has applied for an outdoor dining permit with Henrico County, hoping to offer a 270-square-foot fenced patio.
Also heard on the street, the famous “Hot Doughnuts” sign could soon be glowing in the Far West End. Krispy Kreme is scouting locations for a store in Short Pump, according to real estate sources. Among the spaces the chain is looking into is The Corner at Short Pump, where a 92,000-square-foot Kroger opened late last month.
The store would be the second doughnut shop in Short Pump. Daylight Donuts opened in June.
