New residential apartments proposed for rear of Alexandria Theater lot [Photo: Richmond Blog]
A community meeting to discuss the current and future state of the Alexandria Theater has been scheduled for...Friday night? If you feel like cancelling your weekend plans and sitting through a community meeting instead, the fun will start at 6pm at the Richmond District YMCA on 18th Avenue. Supervisor Mar, Planning Department staff, and the ownership group and architect will be on hand for presentations and to answer questions. Richmond Blog got their hands on the latest version of the development plans, which include a four-story apartment building at the rear of the site and renovations to the theater to accommodate retail stores on the first level, with a 211 seat theater and a full service restaurant on the second level. Head over to Richmond Blog for more renderings and plans for the theater building.
