Historic Rehab Project Creates New Richmond Landmark

Bank Street Advisor’s development of Quirk Hotel, located at 201 W. Broad Street, is leading the transformation of Richmond’s most dynamic neighborhood — the Arts and Cultural District.

The Quirk renovation encompassed two buildings — the former J.B. Mosby and Co. dry goods store and an adjoining property that together form the perfect base to explore the city’s rapidly expanding cultural scene. Opened in September 2015, the iconic six-story 60,000 square foot boutique hotel features 75 guest rooms, with no two rooms being alike. Highlights include:

  • Original Art. Artwork by local, regional and national artists is displayed throughout the hotel. And Quirk Gallery, the signature art gallery of the hotel’s co-owner, Katie Ukrop, has been called one of downtown Richmond’s best galleries.
  • Impressive Gathering Spaces. The 1,800-square-foot roof-top bar offers panoramic views of the city with an industrial/contemporary vibe. The popular coffee bar and state-of-the-art fitness center round out Quirk’s amenities.
  • Signature Restaurant. Maple & Pine is headed by international food star Chef David Dunlap. Maple & Pine features a richly creative menu emphasizing artisanal ingredients, local growers and farmers, and seasonality, complemented by the 1,000-square-foot chef’s garden on the seventh floor.

The hotel has brought over 100 new jobs to Richmond. The art and history behind the location coupled with the tasteful design and style of the hotel is the promising beginning to the transformation of Richmond into a destination of choice. And Bank Street Advisors has been key to its success.
