The redevelopment of an old trolley station on Broad Street is on track.VCU has begun renovations on the 18,000-square-foot building at 814 W. Broad St. The property was previously an old trolley station and most recently was home to the Richmond Glass Shop.
VCU bought the property in February for $2.1 million. The university hired Richmond-based TRENT as the general contractor and Commonwealth Architects on the $6.8 million project.
The property also includes two warehouses on Marshall Street with an additional 8,500 square feet.
When complete, the space will house programs from the School of the Arts.
VCU head of facilities management Brian Ohlinger told BizSense in March that the renovations should be done by December. The project will seek historic tax credits.
