THE FUTURE IS COMING

Once an industrial district, Manchester is known for its historic buildings - many of which have been converted into creative office and apartments. As we look to the future we see quality, well-designed new construction projects enriching the neighborhood’s character and charm.

Thoughtful planning maximizes the neighborhood’s best attributes: access points to the James River; a new walking trail along the Floodwall and River; a new I-95 off ramp just three minutes from The Current; coordinated new developments that bring a mix of restaurants, shops, homes, and offices; community gathering spaces; and arts and cultural spaces. In Manchester we benefit from an engaged community that is invested in designing a future that includes high-quality new development while honoring the existing neighborhood fabric.

"We have a really energetic workforce that loves the outdoors and having access to the river, Belle Isle, Brown’s Island and the various walking and running trails, that holds a lot of appeal to us and our workforce."

- Will Boland, co-founder of CarLotz, on the corporate headquarter's move to Manchester
