While the weather did not fully cooperate, I did manage to go out and take a few photos on Saturday morning of projects under construction around town. Most of these were taken from my car to avoid the light rain that morning.
This Gallery update highlights the following projects:
600 Canal Place
VCU School of Allied Health Professions
VCU Outpatient Tower
701 North 1st Street – Jackson Ward Apartments
The Marshall at City Center
The Locks Tower
Scotts View I & II
Virginia War Memorial Expansion
Whole Foods / Sauers Center
Multiple Skyline Perspectives

On my way home this evening, I stopped to capture a small photo update of the new Dominion HQ going up on East Cary Street. I was also out on January 16th and took more than 70 new photos. You can review the Gallery photos here:
This past Saturday I was able to head out and take a few photos of construction around Shockoe Bottom, Monroe Park and downtown. Photos include the a new apartment building in Shockoe Bottom,new VCU Monroe Park campus dormitory and the new Dominion headquarters tower (pictured below).

I worked most of the day today to clean up the web site account and get the most important parts of this project back online. As you can see, I’ve decided to start fresh with a new front end database for Richmond City Watch (RCW). I’m using WordPress, which I’ve used for the last two years on other projects I’ve set up. It’s incredibly easy to use and even easier to keep updated! I’ve found that I really need to stick with web site software that is easy to use and manage. I want to avoid the web site being taken over by spam bots, again. Check out the navigation bar on the top of the home page to find links to the Gallery and Facebook pages.
The current theme (fonts, colors and graphics) will likely change in the coming weeks. I’ll find something a little more architecturally inspiring.
Also, you’ll notice a big chunk of the web site is still missing. The following features are still MIA while I work on coming up with new ways
Building Database: I plan on restoring these pages as soon as possible. A future update to these pages is planned once they are back online.
FAQ/About US Pages: These will be updated and placed back online once I revise the content of these pages.
Forums: Will work to restore a functional forum for the web site. I’d also like to archive the old forum at some point.
