About the Framework Plan

Divider text here
In response to City Council Resolution 2020-R009, the Department of Planning and Development Review is creating a Coliseum Framework Plan, with the following objectives:
  1. Engage the Richmond community to identify the key elements that must be located in the primary study area and that shall be included in a future request for proposals (RFP)
  2. Set the stage for potential developers to feel excited about responding to another RFP by gaining general public consensus and thereby minimizing developer risk
  3. Develop a draft framework plan including street grid, public space and development zone concepts that address the concerns and suggestions of the community and City staff. The framework may suggest potential programmatic ideas for key locations, if prudent, and will explore the potential of locating a new arena in the area or other activity generators as part of the redevelopment effort
  4. Incorporate the Coliseum Area Framework Plan into the Richmond 300: A Guide for Growth master plan document (Richmond 300 may be adopted by Council prior to the completion of the Coliseum Framework Plan)

The Shockoe Alliance is a group of city staff, preservation experts and community members established by Mayor Levar M. Stoney.. The Shockoe Alliance is charged with guiding the design and implementation of concepts and recommendations for the future of Shockoe with the goal of creating an innovative space of memorialization, learning and transformation – all while protecting the area’s cultural and historic heritage 

The Shockoe Small Area Plan will be the next-step in the implementation of the adopted Pulse Corridor Plan which focused on future development along the Pulse Corridor including surrounding Main Street Station.
