289-unit multifamily project planned near Manchester riverfront
https://richmondbizsense.com/2018/10/22 ... iverfront/An Alabama-based developer that’s pushing for hundreds of apartments in Chesterfield now has its sights set on the city, where it’s looking to deliver one of the largest multifamily projects in Manchester in recent memory.
LIV Development is proposing a seven-building, 289-unit community on 15 contiguous parcels totaling about 7.3 acres near the Lee Bridge at 1400 Railroad Ave.
The site sits next door to SunTrust’s mortgage headquarters campus, and overlooks one of south Richmond’s busiest intersections at Semmes and Cowardin avenues.
LIV is under contract to purchase the acreage. Much of it – about 6.1 acres across 11 of the parcels – is owned by prolific Manchester developers Robin Miller and Dan Gecker, and their firm, Urban Development Associates. The remaining 1.2 acres is owned by a trust belonging to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.
A sales price for the properties was not disclosed. Miller and Gecker listed their share of the property nearly three years ago with an $8 million asking price.
