The Richmond BridgePark Foundation has completed its Vision Stage with a world class team of professionals led by Peter Culley, principal of architecture firm, Spatial Affairs Bureau, Wolf Mangelsdorf, Group Director of structural engineering at Buro Happold, and Michael Flynn, Director of City Strategies at Sam Schwartz Engineering.
The Foundation continues historic levels of community engagement about the project, including workshops, stakeholder meetings. neighborhood meetings, and City-wide public meetings. A 28’ long physical architectural model designed and built by the Spatial Affairs’ team in conjunction with VCU students and other creatives in the Richmond community is currently on traveling exhibition at various sites around Richmond and the wider community.
Concurrently, the Foundation is working with a cost estimation and phasing analysis team at Gardiner and Theobald in New York. Meetings also continue with senior members of the planning and economic development teams at the City of Richmond and state and regional planners as BridgePark enters the implementation stage.
