Goals for Nevin Plaza?

EAH Housing and its team are uniquely qualified to partner with the Richmond Housing Authority to revive Nevin Plaza. EAH has over 50 years of successfully accomplishing and managing similar projects. The following summarizes the goals for this project:

  • Completely rehabilitate and reinvigorate the existing Nevin Plaza building.
  • Develop the vacant lot adjacent to Nevin Plaza with a new building containing 70 – 85 new affordable units for seniors and the disabled.
  • Improve the management and operations of Nevin Plaza.
  • Expand the programs at Nevin Plaza to best meet the needs of its residents.
  • Implement a resident focused relocation process with effective resident engagement, planning and communication on a regular and timely basis beginning early in the process.


Plans to achieve the EAH and RHA goals for Nevin Plaza?

The new Nevin Plaza will be completed in two phases:

  • Phase I – Comprehensively renovate the existing 7-story building with a new elevator, refurbished mechanical and plumbing systems and the upgrading of all units including new finishes, kitchens and bathrooms.
  • Phase II – A newly constructed 70-85 -unit, 4 or 5-story building with on-site parking.

Both projects will continue to be for seniors and the disabled. Each building will feature a sizeable multi-purpose room oriented to the courtyard for residents to enjoy. There will be a new shared entry on 25th Street that will serve the two developments, with offices for resident services and property management.

There will also be a spacious outdoor courtyard with new landscaping, patio paving, and seating for the residents. EAH will also dedicate public art installations that will be incorporated into areas that are accessible to the public.


Status of the Nevin Plaza project

EAH is working on completing the design of Phase I with resident and community engagement on-going. Please see the current Nevin Plaza Rehab Plans by clicking here. Phase I is primarily all interior work so it is expected that only a Building Permit will be needed. EAH plans to be ready to submit for the Building Permit in May with construction projected to begin in the fourth quarter with completion of Phase I approximately a year and half later in 2024. Please see the current Nevin Plaza Rehab Schedule Overview by clicking here.


Community Arts Master Plan

EAH Housing is working with the City of Richmond to renovate Nevin Plaza (2400 Nevin Avenue), an affordable housing community. As part of the renovation process and the City’s public art requirement, public art will be integrated into the building’s exterior and in the Richmond Housing Authority office. SLATE Art Consulting has been engaged by EAH Housing to develop the public art installation(s).

We are reaching out to better understand the Richmond community’s interest in public art, and ask that you complete a short survey to assist our efforts. Please distribute this survey link within your community as well.  Please click here for more detailed information.
