The Navy once-struck Navy Hill project – or at least a portion of it – might be coming back from the dead under a new proposal to build a 20-story office building downtown that would be home to a number of businesses and nonprofits.

From Richmond BizSense:

Three months after Richmond City Council said “no” to the controversial Navy Hill project, the developers behind it are looking to revive a portion of the proposal with a mixed-use development that now calls for a taller VCU Health-anchored tower.

Capital City Partners, the development team that was enlisted for Navy Hill, has submitted an offer to the City of Richmond to buy the Public Safety Building property at 500 N. 10th St. and redevelop the site as a privately owned mixed-use office complex, highlighted with a 20-story tower that would exceed the height of the 17-story VCU Health outpatient building under construction across the street.

The $350 million project, totaling 545,000 square feet, is a variation of what was known as “Block D” in the Navy Hill project, but with the taller tower that would accommodate an additional 150,000 square feet of Class A office space. A tenant for that space isn’t named in the proposal, which describes the space as spec and “designed to attract new business to downtown Richmond.”

One of Richmond’s oldest restaurants has announced a new Kickstarter campaign they hope will help them become Carytown’s first rooftop bar and movie theater, and one of the few event spaces in the neighborhood. New York Deli, located at 2920 W. Cary Street, announced the campaign yesterday.

The plans would see the one-story restaurant add a deck and dining options to their roof as well as a stage for events and a large projection screen upon which to show movies.

The campaign has already raised $17,000 as of this writing; owners hope to raise $145,000 to cover construction costs in addition to a $25,000 downpayment made to a local construction company handling the project.

New York Deli is offering a range of incentives to supporters ranging from a date night dinner for two package all the way up to a catered event and full event venue rental that’s being pitched to brides and grooms to be who may have had to change their wedding plans during the pandemic.

If all goes to plan, the space should open in July. You can learn more about the project here.

From Richmond BizSense:

One of the more prominent restaurant spaces in Scott’s Addition left vacant due to the pandemic has been snapped up by a pair of local industry veterans.

John Reynolds and Steve DeRaffele are preparing to open Pinky’s, a full-service Mediterranean restaurant in the former Urban Farmhouse space at 3031 Norfolk St.

Pinky’s menu will take influences from the entire Mediterranean region, while the restaurant’s name is a nod to DeRaffele’s late mother whose nickname was Pinky.

“I learned how to cook from her and want to make the kind of stuff I learned to make at home,” DeRaffele said. “Now I can bring people into our space and cook for them like I would if they were at my house.”
