RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Private developers plan to construct two buildings that will house Virginia Commonwealth students, classrooms and administrative offices.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/W7OAcD ) reports that ShaferGrace LLC will build a $22 million, 11-story building that will have 152 apartments. It also will have commercial space on the first floor.
Phil Roper will build a $15 million, seven-story building next door on property owned by the VCU Real Estate Foundation. This building will house classrooms and offices. It also will have retail space.
