Richmond BizSense Update on Forest Hill Ave Veil Project

Construction, for the most part, is staying on track.

Every couple weeks one of the neighborhood groups asks about the development at 4910-30 Forest Hill Avenue. The quick answer is that it’s the future home of a Veil Brewing tasting room, apartments, and a mix of retail including Charm School Social Club, Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Co., Boho Studios and Stella’s Grocery.

The folks at Richmond BizSense have a lengthy update on how things are going in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. The spoiler and good news is that construction is on schedule to finish up by July but there is a little as expected bad news.

Bice said the tenants’ shell spaces were handed over to them to begin buildout right when the stay-at-home restrictions went into effect, so work on those spaces has been delayed.

“Because all of those businesses are food- or fitness-related, they’re all businesses that would not be allowed to be open now. So the tenant improvements of those has kind of been on pause, awaiting the stay-at-home restrictions to conclude,” Bice said. “It’ll pick up when (the restrictions) are over.”

Here are some renderings of what you can expect the finished project to look like.
