Scott Farm, a prominent 99-acre site at the northern Henrico I-95/I-295 interchange, has been sold.
The Scott family recently sold the property, located on the southeast corner of the interchange, to Riverstone Properties for $5.69 million. Commonwealth Commercial Partners, LLC represented the family, which had owned the property for generations and had been marketing it for the past decade to potential buyers.
The site had been under contract several times in years past, but none of the deals were finalized. It once was considered as part of a larger site for the NASCAR Hall of Fame, when local officials were bidding for that facility (which was awarded to Charlotte, N.C.) and later as a possible site for Cabela's, which instead will locate in Short Pump. > Read more.

Nearly 800,000 Virginians, about 10 percent of the commonwealth’s population, are veterans – one of the highest concentrations of veterans among the 50 states. During the General Assembly’s recent session, lawmakers showed their appreciation to the men and women who have served in the U.S. military.
Legislators passed a bevy of veterans-related bills. If signed into law by Gov. Terry McAuliffe, they will fund veterans care centers in Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia, expand employment opportunities for veterans and authorize a study of the state’s services for veterans.
The assembly’s salute to the troops coincided with a visit to Richmond by Robert McDonald, the U.S. secretary of veterans affairs. > Read more.
