Looks like Mr. Eck is at it again, and I personally applaud him for this one. Ed Eck and the West Cary Street Planning Committee have proposed a new mixed-use development at the corner of Cary Street and Meadow Street. The development would take over the property where the BP station currently stands, and would be across the street from the Lofts at Cary Place. Apparently Mr. Eck has already spoken to the owner and he is open to selling.
In my opinion, this is great news for the area, but only if the development provides affordable residential and retail space. Over priced development has started to pop up on Cary Street (Townes at Cary Place) and other areas of Richmond. I think we can all agree that today we need to provide options to everyone – not just the top 5 to 10%.Posted: April 30th, 2009 | Author: Morgan Porter | Filed under: News, Non-Randolph, Real Estate News | Tags: BP, cary, cary street, development, eck, Eck Enterprises, ed eck, real estate, west cary planning committee | Comments Off
