I was excited to read today’s Richmond Biz Sense feature article “Massive outlet mall is no fish story.”
Plans for a 375,000-square-foot outlet mall near Bass Pro Shops in Hanover are moving forward, with the developer Craig Realty Group purchasing 43 acres at at the northeast corner of the intersection of Lewistown Road and Lakeridge Parkway just off Interstate 95 and stating it hoped to break ground on the first phases within a year. The current project stage involves getting approval from the county and pre-leasing spaces.
From Craig Realty Group’s website:
Outlets At Richmond
Located along the nation’s most heavily traveled interstate, Highway 95, the site of Outlets at Richmond currently features a 150,000 s.f. BassPro. In 2009 the store attracted 1.8 million visitors. Complimenting Bass Pro will be a 375,000 s.f. outlet center, hotels and restaurants. In all, over 900,000 s.f. of retail space will be filled with an exciting selection of nationally recognized retailers as well as trendy local and regional merchants.

Spotted this notice in the Sunday Times-Dispatch:
“Used bricks, cinderblocks and similar inert materials are available at the U.S. 301 transfer station for Hanover County residents to remove for their own uses. The material is free to those who can load it into their vehicle without help. If the county loader is needed to dump the material into the vehicle bed, the cost is $2 per cubic yard, with a minimum of five cubic yards.
Hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday except for holidays. For more information, call the Department of Public Works at (804) 365-6181.”
I have no idea what kind of condition the materials are in, but used bricks might add a lot of character to a (free) DIY home improvement project! I pinned a couple brick project ideas here.
The info caught my eye because I had just read a useful article in the April issue of Better Homes and Gardens about Jim Keefe, a gentleman in Boston who created a gorgeous garden mostly utilizing salvaged materials. He had some tips for finding free or cheap gardening materials:
Do you guys have any tips, or success stories, about salvaged or otherwise free landscaping materials?
