If You Build It, They Don't Necessarily Come 


Richmond loves publicly financed White Elephants, as proven by this decade's herd of well-intentioned yet lukewarmly received projects:

Stony Point Fashion Park

Pocahontas Parkway

Greater Richmond Convention Center

Main Street Station

6th Street Market Place (RIP 2008)

Near miss: Shockoe Bottom Baseball Complex

On notice: CenterStage

White Elephant of the Decade: Greater Richmond Convention Center
