HG was the civil engineering and landscape architecture firm for The Nest, which is shaping up to be one of Richmond’s premier boutique apartment complexes. Situated in trendy Scott’s Addition, this six-story multi-family development boasts a below-grade parking garage accessed from the alley, second-story terrace pool and first-floor retail and commercial space. The $20 million, 118-unit apartment building was developed by repeat client Tom Papa. Combining civil engineering and landscape architecture provided visual and fiscal value to the project.
The general scope to prepare the Plan of Development (POD) plan set and application and to respond to City of Richmond comments during the permitting phase of development was executed. Permitting included Work-In-Streets permit and Land Disturbance Permit and other site related permits. Stormwater detention to allow the project to tie to the City’s combined sewer system is provided below the footprint of the building. The property has been rezoned to TOD-1; B-7 zoning is across West Marshall Street, but TOD-1 surrounds the rear and side of the project site.
