RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC ) — Several Civil War-era structures have been discovered under a construction site in downtown Richmond.
In 2021, city leaders announced that the CoStar Group Inc. was expanding its campus in Richmond by building a new 26 story building. In the plans the new campus is expected to be 750,000 square feet and will include office and retail space. It was announced that the building would also include six stories for employee amenities like an auditorium, fitness facilities, a conference center and restaurant spaces.
The project broke ground in 2022.
On Monday, CoStar Group’s construction team uncovered a 42-foot-long- red brick tunnel-like structure while excavating the construction site.
