RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – A major construction project for Shockoe Slip is one step closer to reality.
A proposal to build a religious freedom center and two hotels along East Cary Street received praise from the commission of architectural review last night.
The Marriott Hotel would include a courtyard and more than 200 rooms.
The Monument to Religious Freedom at Cary and 14th streets would replace what's now a parking lot.
If the plan gets final approval, construction will begin early 2011.
