Henrico’s Scott Farm sold


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.

The Greater Richmond Partnership has announced that Kels USA Corporation has chosen Henrico County for the location of its expansion to the United States. The electrical contact material company has started business with a small sales office with plans to expand to manufacturing their products locally in the next 2-4 years.

Subsequent meetings and visits followed, including three visits to the Richmond Region and three to the Kels headquarters in Brazil during marketing missions.
