On Sunday, I took my camera along to capture a small photo update of the new Dominion HQ going up on East Cary Street. I also took a couple of other photos of nearby buildings. Hoping to take some time in January to provide a more comprehensive update for the web site. In the meantime, 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).
Check out the photo album by selecting the photo below.
With little fanfare, the state’s Zincke Building is being demolished this week. It appears that the old stone base may be salvaged. At this point, I’m unaware of what may be constructed on this site.
I also had a chance to head over to the new Canal Lofts V construction site on East Main Street to take a few photos. Click the photo below to view the entire photo gallery.
I took a handful of photos from the City Hall’s observation deck back in August. I overlooked these photos for awhile, but discovered them last week when I was reviewing photos from last year. Thanks to the recent snowfall, I had time to finally upload this photo set. Enjoy the photo set by clicking on the photo below.
No real excuses on the lack of photos, it seems that work, the gym and weekend landscaping chores seem to eat away at a lot of my free time these days. Nonetheless, on July 31st I took a stroll through the neighborhood and snapped a couple photos of the City and Church Hill as the sun was setting. Hope you enjoy this small photos set. I also fixed a small Gallery glitch this evening. If you see anything not working properly, please message me on Facebook.
2015 will mark the 15th anniversary of RCW in March. My focus this year is not only provide a photo update each month, but to write some additional stories over the year that highlight the changes to downtown since 2000.
In the meantime, a set of of photos from 2 weeks ago is now up in the RCW Gallery. Please select the photo below to access the January 2015 Gallery.
