In April 2023, Capital Square broke ground on a 352-unit, Class A multifamily development in the Scott’s Addition neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia, located within a designated qualified opportunity zone. Construction of the development is expected to be completed by Spring 2025.
“Capital Square has a track record of success in Scott’s Addition, building Class A mixed-use multifamily communities for the firm’s opportunity zone funds,” said Louis Rogers, founder and co-chief executive officer of Capital Square. “Two of the three communities known as Scott’s Collection were built, leased up, permanently financed and stabilized, all in record time with rents exceeding pro forma, while the third and final community within Scott’s Collection is currently in lease-up and performing ahead of schedule. With strong demand from qualified residents, this is an excellent time to build another exceptional Class A residential community in Scott’s Addition.”
Established in 1901, Scott’s Addition is a historic area known for its food, drink and entertainment amenities, including 13 breweries, cideries, meaderies and distilleries. Once a hub for industrial buildings and businesses, Scott’s Addition has become the number one “millennial hot spot” in Virginia, with a 43% increase in millennials in just five years, according to RENTCafe. The area is a designated opportunity zone with a census tract that stretches across Virginia Commonwealth University and the Carver community and is now known as Richmond’s fastest growing neighborhood, according to the Greater Scott’s Addition Association.
“Scott’s Addition has become the hottest neighborhood in Richmond, with heavy demand for high-quality rental housing,” said Whitson Huffman, co-chief executive officer. “It is a walkable, amenity-rich neighborhood that has attracted a growing population of affluent young renters and is among the highest performing markets in Richmond in terms of occupancy. Demand for our previous four apartment communities within Scott’s Addition has exceeded our expectations, and we expect our fifth development will perform in a similar fashion.”
Capital Square has partnered with Timmons Group as civil engineer, Poole & Poole Architecture as building architect, Hourigan Construction as general contractor, ENV as interior designer and Marvel Designs as landscape architect, all locally based firms.
