From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

A five-story Residence Inn by Marriott is being planned for the northwest corner of North Thompson Street and Floyd Avenue on the western edge of the Museum District just a few blocks from Carytown.

The 127-room extended-stay hotel would be built off the Floyd Avenue exit ramp from Interstate 195. The hotel, which also would have about 5,600 square feet of ground-floor retail or restaurant space, would be across the street from the Patient First urgent care center.

A five-story parking deck would be built across Berrington Court just west of the hotel, close to I-195, where a surface parking lot exists now. The parking deck would have 193 spaces, 148 of which would be for the hotel, restaurant, and retail uses while the remaining 45 spaces would be used by the existing property owner.

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Tom Leonard’s Farmer’s Market, which has operated in western Henrico County since 2004, is getting bigger.

The 15,000-square-foot market will nearly double in size when the store expansion project is completed later this year, owner Tom Leonard said.

Construction should begin late in the spring.

The expansion will take over the tented area to the left of the store – where pumpkins and Christmas trees are typically sold.

The added space will enable the market, off Tom Leonard Drive, to expand and move its bakery and deli departments into the new space. The bakery will be able to make fresh-boiled bagels – “the way they do them in New York,” Leonard said.

The board also voted to authorize the use of $50 million to build an indoor sports arena at Virginia Center Commons.
