Nine-acre Elks Lodge property near Innsbrook slated to be transformed into mixed use development

Highwoods Properties paid $3.3 million for the nine-acre Elks Lodge near Innsbrook After Hours and plans to mull over mixed-use, high density options for the site.

From Richmond BizSense:

One of the biggest landlords in Innsbrook has amassed more land in the area, this time snagging a block of acreage next to the site where the Innsbrook After Hours concert series is held.

Highwoods Properties last month bought the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks Lodge No. 45 property at 10022 Elks Pass Lane in Henrico. It paid $3.3 million for the 9-acre assemblage, which adds to another 12 adjacent and largely undeveloped acres the company already owns.

Jane DuFrane, Highwoods’ vice president and local market lead, said the company still is mulling options for the Elks land and adjacent sites, including developing a “walkable community with a mix of uses.”

“The Elks Lodge property’s contiguous proximity to our other land holdings and existing office buildings made it a natural fit for our portfolio,” DuFrane said in an email.

From Richmond BizSense:

After its first attempt to get into the Richmond market fell flat, a Canadian axe-throwing bar is back with a location coming to Scott’s Addition.

Bad Axe Throwing is preparing to open at 3100 W. Leigh St. in a 5,000-square-foot space in the old Nicholson Sprinkler Corp. building.

Based in Ontario, Bad Axe has nearly 50 locations throughout the U.S., Canada and the U.K. In 2018, it began planning a Richmond location on West Broad Street, across from the forthcoming Whole Foods in Sauer Center.

But those plans fell through last spring. Bad Axe owner Mario Zelaya said there was an issue about the amount of parking available at that location, which caused them to scrap the plans.

Westminster Canterbury plans to expand facility into former Azalea Mall site in Northside

At least 125 new independent living units are planned on the desolate parcel between Dumbarton and Brook Roads, plans show.

Published

From the Henrico Citizen:

Relief may be coming soon for a longtime Northern Henrico eyesore.

Westminster Canterbury Richmond is proposing a 10-acre expansion of its retirement community between Dumbarton Road and Brook Road adjacent to I-95. The expansion would occur on a portion of the former site of the Azalea Mall, which has been vacant for several decades. Westminster Canterbury bought the 10-acre section of the site in 2018.

Plans call for the addition of 125 new independent living units – 93 of them coming from five new buildings on the new acreage and the rest as part of a multi-level addition to an existing building on the current site. WCR also is proposing to build a new multi-level parking deck and a new aquatic and athletic facility as part of the project. The community currently has 498 independent living units and a total of 820 units in all.
