Developers tweak two-tower plan to preserve more of Legend’s view – Richmond BizSense

But following discussions with the neighborhood, most notably Legend Brewing Co., whose patio view would’ve been significantly obscured by the buildings, Avery Hall is now planning to shift the western building 81 feet to the east and 20 feet closer to the river, a move they say will preserve significantly more of the view of downtown from Legend’s deck. The land to the west that the building would have occupied will instead be a courtyard.
