Per the City of Richmond, all utilities are accessible to the site (see Utilities Map in Brochure).

Nearby multi-family developments include Highland Grove Apartments (0.5 ± miles) and The James (1.3 ± miles), and this site is just 2.0 miles from the proposed 10-block redevelopment project surrounding the Richmond Coliseum, led by Dominion Energy CEO Thomas F. Farrell II.
