The Richmond Kicker’s Building, known for the distinctive soccer player murals on the front of the property, had been sitting un-renovated in the middle of Richmond’s Fan District for years.
One South’s growing business needed new space and as any real estate brokerage knows, ownership is typically a far better strategy than tenancy. And as an agency located in the City whose brand is less traditional, we wanted to make sure our space backed the brand we were building.
The Kickers Building met all of the requirements for our new home:
- qualified for Historic Tax Credits
- architecturally engaging
- Fan District location
- ample parking
- open and collaborative space
In June of 2013, we moved 10 blocks west to our new home. It has been a great thing for our company.
