Dominion requests 3-month deferral in Varina substation case

In response to citizen input, company to consider adjacent site as possibility

UPDATE: MAY 23, 1:50 P.M. – Plans for a Dominion Virginia Power substation in Varina could be delayed for three more months, after company officials today requested a deferral of their scheduled June 9 case before the Henrico Planning Commission.

The company is seeking to build a substation in Varina to improve service reliability in the region and wants to locate it on a 1.5-acre portion of a 10-acre site at 7000 Osborne Turnpike.

Company officials now are asking that the case be delayed until September so that they may consider input they received during a public meeting May 17 at Varina High School. Specifically, they intend to consider the possibility of purchasing a portion of an adjacent 477-acre parcel on Osborne Turnpike, which was listed for sale recently. Several speakers at last week's meeting urged Dominion representatives to consider that option.

Officials see positives in commercial sector


What's the future of commercial real estate in Henrico County?

On Sept. 22, 120 members of the Greater Richmond Association for Commercial Real Estate (GRACRE) got a glimpse of it on what was billed as GRACRE's first real estate bus tour.

Beginning at North Shore Commons in Innsbrook, the three sold-out buses traveled to nine featured locations and made four stops, most of them in Henrico.

Among other western Henrico sites, riders viewed the vacant Deep Run I, which previously housed Circuit City offices but will soon serve as headquarters for travel insurance company Mondial Assistance US. Also located along the route were Glen Forest's Highland I – notable as the first project on the East Coast to use an innovative weight-saving structural system – and Towne Center West, the westernmost mixed-used development tied to Short Pump Town Center and the future Gayton Road flyover.
