Nevin Plaza

The Richmond Housing Authority (RHA) is seeking a qualified affordable housing development team to partner on the redevelopment and operations of Nevin Plaza. The development team will work with RHA to convert Nevin Plaza to a local Project Based Vouchers (PBV) contract using the Section 18 Disposition process. The team will also leverage Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and other state and local development subsidies to address capital needs. 

Downtown Richmond has a lot of exciting developments on the horizon that will help to restore its historic role as a social, cultural, and civic destination. The preservation of affordable high density housing on this site is critical to RHA’s mission. The ideal redevelopment will incorporate thoughtful design, serve a broad spectrum of low-income individuals, and maximize the number of units that can best serve the community and remain consistent with the neighborhood’s vision.
