RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - You could soon seen more retail coming to the Carytown area.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting that a realty firm wants to convert a Verizon building into retail space.

A specialty grocery store could be among the possible uses for the building.

The real estate firm has applied for a permit to convert the two-story building into a retail center that would have an underground parking garage with about 98 spaces.

It could take months for the Richmond City Council to approve the special-use permit.

If approved, the Verizon employees in Carytown would be moved out to other locations by the end of September.
