Richmond BizSense Reporting on Two Proposals for 500 Apartments Near Semmes Avenue

One of the spots was a mobile home park while the other was a gas station.




From Richmond

Dallas-based Trammell Crow Residential is planning three apartment buildings totaling 260 units at 2000 Semmes Ave. and 418 Cowardin Ave., while Tennessee-based Elmington is planning roughly the same number of units at 2201 McDonough St.

Trammell Crow’s project would rise on a 5.3-acre plot that’s been eyed for a variety of uses over the years, including a Wawa, office space and retail outparcel. Elmington, meanwhile, is looking to build on a 6.7-acre parcel that was formerly a mobile home park, located downhill of Semmes Avenue and across from Richmond Fire Station 17.
