$100M Manchester riverfront project begins this summer with 14-story tower
After striking a deal with the city over access to the site, a local development firm is moving forward with plans to add two towers beside Manchester’s Mayo Bridge gateway.

Tom Papa, who runs Richmond-based Fountainhead Properties, has filed a development plan for a 14-story mixed-use tower – the first of two buildings planned for the 3.74-acre site of a former paper mill at 111 Hull St.

Papa, who parted ways with former business partner John Gregory earlier this year while retaining ownership of Fountainhead, is teaming up with WVS Cos.’ Richard Souter and Jason Vickers-Smith on the multi-phased, $100 million project, dubbed South Falls.

To be built on a quasi-island west of the Mayo Bridge alongside the James River floodwall, South Falls would consist of hundreds of apartments in a pair of towers to be completed in two phases, Papa said.

“This really is a beautiful site,” he said. “But there were challenges early on because of its location on the canal, and having to navigate city-owned property.”

I’d love to get an update on this one too. Every morning I check in the RTD and Richmondbizsense to see if they announce the start of one or both of these proposed towers, but I get nothing but crickets. They’ve negotiated with the city to get the access they need, but this project seems to be going nowhere. Not sure what the hold up is...I hope it goes through.

It appears the POD is still pending review? Might need to see if we can get a copy of the plans from the city, along with a status update.

Someone posted this design on UrbanPlanet. I’m told this is the final design:

Can’t figure out how to post an image on this board. Nothing seemed to work. Tried the image and the link buttons above...nothing.

Thank you Eric for sharing! I hadn't seen this yet. I like the height...not sure about the rest of it.

Eric, I'll do some testing on the images to see what works. I know Flickr won't let me remote post the image to the forum. I'll attach this post and add to the main post tonight. :)

Yeah, this thing is slow to get off the ground. Hopefully soon though. Thanks for the update!

Was there mention last week in the RTD that this is moving forward?
