A five-story dry goods warehouse built in 1916 and a two-story tobacco drying shed built in 1948 were the raw material for the project that we transformed into Canal Crossing. Located in the historic Shockoe district of Richmond, VA, Canal Crossing is a mixed-use 105,000 sf building, currently with 85,000 sf of office space, and 19,700 sf retail.
Historic materials such as brick, wood framing, and steel columns have been left exposed, while a modern steel and glass atrium connects the two buildings across what was once a narrow parking area. Former loading docks have become outdoor seating for restaurant tenants.
