Representing a long term investment in downtown Richmond, this Tower is the first of a two-phase master plan for Dominion Energy. Tower 1, completed in 2019, houses 1,200 employees and several amenities, including Dining, Fitness, a one acre Roof Terrace, Meeting Center and Retail. The unique curving form of glass and aluminum, inspired by a sail, contrasts the surrounding structures in both style and detail. A tailored lattice of fins and diagonal rods gives the curved façades a special textural quality unlike any high-rise in Richmond.
Due to Dominion Energy’s vision, the project was designed throughout to very high energy efficient and green building standards. These aspects create a building that is not-only healthier for the environment but more comfortable and healthier for its occupants.
The project received LEED Gold certification by the USGBC.
Awarded “Project of the Decade” by GRACRE (Greater Richmond Association for Commercial Real Estate)
