One Shockoe Plaza

-A A +A
1995–1997, CMSS Architects, Burrell Saunders, principal designer

The success of Shockoe Slip's revitalization brought its by-product: too many professionals wanted to locate here. In the absence of strong design controls, buildings like this, which are primarily offices, have begun to appear. Designed by a Virginia Beach firm, this large brick office building makes a tenuous and unsuccessful attempt at relating to the nineteenth-century surroundings.
