UPDATE: Dec. 10, 6:35 P.M. – Henrico County officials are proposing that the county sell a prominent 93-acre site adjacent to I-95 that it purchased for $6.2 million just two years ago.
County Manager John Vithoulkas is recommending the sale of Best Plaza, which sits at the interchange of Parham Road and I-95 in northern Henrico.
When the county bought the property in December 2011, officials envisioned it as the future home for many of Henrico's key governmental agencies, which would relocate from the western government center on Parham Road and allow the courts complex to undergo a much-needed expansion there. > Read more.
