Urbane Renewal 3 - Gotham on Main

It's one thing to create a home out of an old warehouse in Manchester and another to adaptively reuse a relic in trendy Shockoe Bottom, but carving a modern condo out of the heart of the business district is hardcore and cool. Imagine this as your front porch. This is urban living by any standard.

I'm not an art or interior design critic so make your own judgements on what you like. Having no sense of style myself, I'm in way over my head, but I'm cool. I could sip cocktails here. This is a Richmond that I'm not used to seeing. It's a lifestyle that is not for or affordable to everyone, but brings a certain class and excitement. Others beg to differ, but it's hard for me to see Richmond being a better place without these spaces and the people who occupy them.
