JUST IN: Henrico County officials are endorsing a developer’s vision for Green City, a $2.3 billion private, mixed-use “eco-district” development, including a 17,000-seat arena for major concerts, sporting events and other entertainment.

CAA Tournament?
NCAA 1st Round?
VHSL State Hoops Tournament?
Minor league hockey and/or hoops?

Apologizes if this has already been announced but I didn’t see it. Will Green City be accessible via public transit or will you have to drive there?

I guess you could go via GRTC Pulse 😁 Richmond does not have any other public transit options.

Considering the scope of the project, I'd be shocked if there wasn't a major public-transit component to it. Kinda wish Richmond had committed to rail, but it is what it is.

Not sure why this matters since the City of Richmond voted down the Navy Hill project. The City of Richmond has proven time and again that no other municipal government is capable of screwing up a one car funeral the way they can. The City of Richmond has had their chance to build an arena. Now it's time for someone else to step up, with or without accessibility via public transit.

Funny that you posted an NBC12 tweet. They are the only ones who were “too busy” to show up. We told them that it was big news but alas 😂Guess they did not believe it was big news. Now they are playing catch up. They are lucky that my dept is helpful with footage and interviews in that regard.

Considering that this is a long-term project, I would not be surprised if Henrico worked with GRTC to increase public transit access to that area. They're definitely more open to working with them than Chesterfield is.

Particularly in the past decade, the county board of supervisors has shown a legit interest in adding GRTC routes to the county.

The willow lawn pulse stop is by far their busiest. I feel like more often than not, there's a solid group of people coming and going from there with plenty of bags of stuff purchased at Willow Lawn. I'd have to think they'd get bus service to this new development, particularly if they're playing up the whole "green" thing. Maybe they'll put a dispensary up there too.
