Renovations Planned for Shockoe Plaza Parking Deck


Construction to renovate the two elevators inside the Shockoe Plaza Parking Deck located at 100 Virginia Street will begin February 27.  To bring the current elevators up-to-date, Thyssen Elevator will be replacing the cabs, shaft components and all motors and controls with new equipment. The renovation will require taking down part of the stone walls surrounding the elevator frames on all six levels of the deck. For safety measures, wooden enclosures will be erected around each elevator lobby area. Once work begins, both elevators will be out of service and patrons will have to use the stairs. 

Highwoods Properties, Standard Parking and the City of Richmond will post signage throughout the parking deck, at stairwell doors and at the entrance and exit to the deck. 
The project is expected to be completed by May 15.

Patrons with special needs can contact Dean Squires, Director of Asset Management with Highwoods Properties at 804-290-2161.
