Building resilient communities.


Our Projects

Lynx Ventures specializes in the development and management of multi-family properties, commercial spaces, medical facilities, and affordable housing where each and every project we undertake has a significant impact on the social and economic vibrancy of a community.


Over the past 15 years, our partners have invested in excess of $300 million to develop more than 20 projects in Richmond, Petersburg and Charlottesville. Lynx has created over 800 residential units, 150 artist and business studios, and over 1 million square feet of commercial/office/industrial space.

The ground-up project will include 60,000 sf column-free office space, 215 apartment units, 19,000 sf retail, a landscaped courtyard and structured parking. The 400 Hull Street site is located in a qualified Virginia Opportunity Zone.

Membership includes access to business, food & beverage, finance, tax incentive and marketing mentorship, as well as communal kitchen space, reservable pods, commercial-grade equipment, refrigeration and storage space. Hatch Cafe is coming soon.


Clopton Siteworks

South Richmond District, Richmond VA

Formerly the Philip Morris Tobacco Storage Warehouse Complex, this 25-acre site includes twenty-six 20,000-square-foot historic timber-frame warehouses. Financed in part by historic tax credits, the buildings are being re-purposed to meet the varying needs of small businesses; eight warehouses have been completed and currently house a variety of companies and nonprofits. Once complete, this project is expected to bring more than 500 jobs to the neighborhood, creating a thriving new business district in South Richmond.


Top Golf

Henrico County VA

Topgolf, a global sports and entertainment community that blends technology and entertainment to appeal to golfers, non-golfers, children, and adults, is approved for new construction at 2308 Westwood Avenue, on the edge of the popular Scott’s Addition neighborhood. As a multi-story golf and entertainment venue, the project will have long-term economic impact in an area that is prime for new development.


Carlton Views

Charlottesville VA

Through a grant by the city of Charlottesville and a loan by the Virginia Housing and Development Authority, Lynx will expand the residential component of this master-planned development from 54-units of affordable housing to 102 units. Construction of the next 48 units is scheduled for the Spring of 2018.


New Manchester Flats

Manchester District, Richmond VA

New Manchester Flats, developed by Rick Gregory and Tom Papa as a historic rehabilitation project, transformed two industrial-era buildings into 172 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments and 46 artist studios. By combining intelligent design with green standards, the project created desirable urban living in what had been a neglected warehouse district. Great attention was given to preserve and reuse organic elements such as such as concrete, heart pine and maple flooring, exposed brick, and wood beams wherever possible, while incorporating every modern convenience. Lynx will develop an additional 104 affordable housing units in the Spring 2018.


Other Holdings


The Locks

Richmond VA

Encompassing six acres of Richmond’s downtown waterfront, The Locks is an exclusive enclave of residential and commercial spaces along the historic Haxall and Kanawha canals. The project reconnected the bustling business district, dining, shopping and entertainment venues of Shockoe Slip with the city’s waterfront.


Miller Lofts

Manchester District, Richmond VA

Miller Lofts, an income-restricted multi-family development funded by entirely by LIHTCs, proved the notion that affordable housing can and should be abundant with many of the features and amenities one would expect in market-rate housing. Among the amenities are a 1,900-square-foot saltwater swimming pool with two dedicated lap lanes and an on-site kayak center where residents can check-out equipment for enjoying the nearby James River.


Plant Zero

Manchester District, Richmond VA

The revitalization of the Manchester Warehouse District that Rick Gregory and Tom Papa began in 2001 with The Commons at Plant Zero has since become regarded as the core of this booming district. Located just across the Mayo Bridge from downtown Richmond, Plant Zero grew to include uniquely designed apartment homes, art studios, restaurants, and commercial, retail, and event spaces.


Riverside P.A.C.E.

Central Virginia

Riverside P.A.C.E. (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) serves seniors as a community-based alternative to institutional long-term care, empowering residents to remain in their homes by providing comprehensive medical and social services. In partnership with the Riverside Health System, centers have been developed in the Manchester and Scott’s Addition neighborhoods of Richmond, Virginia, and in the city of Charlottesville, Virginia.
