Tobacco Row is a unique adaptive reuse of a series of six abandoned tobacco warehouses on the James River in downtown Richmond, Va. When Forest City became involved in the project in the late 1990s, forward-thinking leaders of Richmond had already developed a vision for reviving the district, but an initial development effort had failed.

By forging a broad public/private partnership with concerned citizens, the City of Richmond and the Virginia Housing Finance Agency, among others, Forest City was able to create an innovative plan to finance and redevelop the warehouses, while preserving the historical significance of the buildings as part of Richmond’s past as a center of the tobacco industry.

Today, Tobacco Row is a thriving mixed-use, residential district with five multifamily residential buildings with a total of 730 units; one, 137,000-square-foot office building; and related retail to serve the growing community. It stands as a prime example of Forest City’s core competencies to urban infill and adaptive reuse, and as a testament to the strength of the public/private partnership as a vehicle for positive change and economic revitalization of America’s cities.
