From Richmond BizSense:
Two developers are teaming on a project to satisfying Scott’s Addition’s growing appetite for new dining, booze and open space.
Snipes Properties announced Friday that it has partnered with Spy Rock Real Estate to redevelop a 1.5-acre site at 1708 Belleville St. into the neighborhood’s first winery, a project that also will include a restaurant and park space for people and their pets.
Through its 1708 Belleville LLC, the group purchased the site Nov. 5 for $2 million, according to city real estate records. It most recently was assessed by the city for $994,000.
“Scott’s Addition desperately needs park space,” said Carter Snipes, owner of Snipes Properties. “When we formed this partnership, we wanted to devise a plan that would enhance the winery and restaurant amenity we plan to bring to Belleville Street while delivering a much-needed amenity to the neighborhood.”
