“Richmond may not be nationally known for its high-profile startup scene, but the city has been working quietly to change that,” the survey says. “Operations such as LendUp, Knox Payments, Grid 20/20, and Envera Health have all contributed to putting the city on the entrepreneurial map, and we’re betting on this trend continuing in 2019 and beyond. Richmond is also a popular location for “innovation offices” of large companies like CarMax.”
Best office: Envera Health. Best industrial: Amazon Sortation Distribution. Best large-scale retail: West Broad Marketplace. Best small-scale retail: Studio Two Three. Best health and wellness: Bon Secours Sarah Garland Jones Center for Healthy Living. Best multi-family: Gallery Midtown Clubhouse.
A former dry-cleaning facility that was redeveloped into a multi-use space credited with setting a new rent ceiling in one of Richmond’s hottest development areas won top honors as Project of the Year during GRACRE’S awards event on Tuesday.
Envera Health cut the ribbon on its new 27,000-square-foot headquarters Thursday in the Riverside on the James building at 1001-1101 Haxall Point, along the canal downtown. CEO Dan Neuwirth said the move to the canal allowed the company, which offers scheduling, referral and other services to health systems, to consolidate its offices into one location.
