As part of the city-wide Richmond 300 Plan, we helped the city reposition public land to unlock new growth and create new urban destinations. We prepared an urban design framework for the Diamond District (formerly known as Greater Scott’s Addition) and a vision for City Center, the 15 acres of land surrounding the Richmond Coliseum.
These plans were developed through a combination of physical and virtual public engagement. They define neighborhood scale, use and character, new connections and signature public spaces that become community focal points. Each plan will inform a future solicitation for development partners.
The Diamond District will become a new mixed-use neighborhood anchored by a replacement for the ‘The Diamond’ ballpark and the Crescent Park, a linear public space that links the new community to transit and the cultural institutions along Broad Street. City Center infuses downtown with new livability, transforming public parking areas into high density residential, office and supporting retail adjacent to the convention center and City Hall.
