$58M, 12-story tower slated along canal
With a previous plan for a taller bank-anchored tower scrapped, a local development team is shifting to a new project to continue what it started with its downtown Locks development.

WVS Cos. and developer Tom Papa are planning a 12-story, 237-unit apartment building at 1001 E. Byrd St., on a 1.2-acre site between the Locks and Riverfront Plaza. The parcel previously was planned for a 21-story, SunTrust-anchored tower to be developed by Dominion Realty Partners, which had been under contract to purchase the property.

After SunTrust pulled out, that cleared the way for WVS and Papa to go forward with other plans for the site – part of the multi-building former Reynolds North plant along the canal that they began redeveloping in 2012.

“When we got the property back, we elected not to add additional office space into our building,” said Richard Souter, WVS executive vice president. “It kind of complicates financing a little bit for us. Plus, we thought there was enough existing office space in downtown that we really didn’t need to add to that.”

The ground floor of the building will include 12,000 square feet of commercial space, while the rest of the C-shaped tower will be filled with one- and two-bedroom apartments ranging from 570 to 1,200 square feet, along with nine larger top-level penthouses with outdoor terraces and significantly higher rents.

From 11/18/2018:

I'm guessing the building will be "U" shaped, much like the new Monroe Park VCU tower?

Can confirm. I remember when the news came out about this project in the RTD, they mentioned that it would be “C” shaped...although looking at it from the north point of view it appears to be a large cube.

Thanks Eric! I assumed it was a big cube, but that doesn't make sense for a residential building with this floor size! ;)

As of December 2, 2018: Looks like one more recessed floor to go?

What?! You were able to time travel?! :lol:

This is a good pic...still disappointed in this project though. I will probably never look at it without thinking about would could have gone there.
