Another company is leaving the suburbs for Scott’s Addition.
Construction company Whiting-Turner is relocating its offices from Midlothian to The Spur, a planned mixed-use development at the old Phipps & Bird facility at 1519 Summit Ave. and 3015 Moore St., according to a permit filed with the city.
The company is set to occupy about 6,600 square feet of office space at the corner of Moore and Altamont streets in the development. The national general contracting and design/build firm currently operates its Richmond division at 9210 Arboretum Parkway in The Arboretum.
Calls and an email to Whiting-Turner were not returned Tuesday afternoon.
Spur developers Jason Guillot and Justin Paley hope to deliver the project by spring 2019, though an exact timeline for Whiting Turner’s move has not been released.
Whiting-Turner will join several other office users that have signed on for the 35,000-square-foot project. Law firm Roth Jackson will take over 6,500 square feet upon its move from Shockoe Slip. Local private-equity firm Blue Heron Capital, which also is leaving the Southside, will occupy 3,200 square feet in the development.
The Spur has four units available for lease, ranging from 2,200 to about 6,100 square feet, according to its latest marketing brochure.
