James River Nurseries recently landscaped the new Virginia ABC Headquarters and Warehouse located in Hanover County. Situated on a 40-acre site near the intersection of Pole Green Road and I-295, this new facility includes a 315,000 square-foot warehouse and a 95,000 square-foot office building where approximately 500 of Virginia ABC's 4,000 workers will be stationed.
The new complex will replace the 50 year-old Virginia ABC Headquarters located on Hermitage Road near the Diamond. That facility sits on approximately 20 acres and has a warehouse slightly larger that 295,000 square-feet. Expanding the size and scope of the new operations will allow the Virginia ABC to keep pace with growth of both the ABC stores as well as the craft beverage industry.
As for the coveted property on Hermitage Road the Virginia ABC will be leaving, look for a new VCU athletic village to be built. That facility is slated to have 18 tennis courts, multiuse courts, a soccer field & practice field, as well as indoor and outdoor tracks.
