From Richmond BizSense:

The local developer behind a planned conversion of a former Masonic lodge building in Jackson Ward is extending her efforts to other properties next door.

Lizzie Drucker-Basch, who is leading the redevelopment of the three-story, 15,000-square-foot building at 10 W. Leigh St. into 14 one-bedroom apartments, has purchased three adjacent properties with plans to likewise revitalize them.

Around the start of the year, Drucker-Basch purchased two adjacent storefronts on the east side of the building, at 12-14 and 14½ W. Leigh St., for $370,000 and $155,100, respectively. The buildings most recently were assessed at $205,000 and $69,000, according to city property records.
