Former Scott’s Addition bank tapped to become brewery

Statement Brewing Company will occupy the former SunTrust Bank branch come 2017.

From Richmond BizSense:

A duo of local restaurateurs is looking to make a statement by giving the brimming Scott’s Addition beer scene some Broad Street frontage.

Jay Shah and Joel Gilbert plan to convert the former SunTrust branch at 3022 W. Broad St. into Statement Brewing Company.

The 10,000-square-foot site will be reconfigured to accommodate a brewery and restaurant. Shah would not disclose many details about the type of restaurant and style of beers Statement Brewing will serve.

“We want to make this a destination,” said Shah, majority owner of the venture and an executive at locally based Shamin Hotels. “So we thought that bringing in a restaurant would accomplish that, given what’s occurring in Scott’s Addition.”
