The Current logo

Buzzing with energy and momentum, The Current is a regional destination and a neighborhood nexus. Stunning new residences and elevated office space are surrounded by just-right retail, restaurants, culture and recreation. Redefining what it means to be mixed-use in Richmond, Lynx Ventures goes beyond the bounds of traditional development to have a profound, positive, lasting impact on the quality of life and economic opportunity at The Current and in Manchester. Take Charge of your day at The Current.


Comprised of residential, office, and retail, this mixed-use, full block development is located in the transforming Manchester neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia. The Current is named for Manchester’s proximity to the James River rapids, with a nod to its future as a transportation hub along I-95, housing 75+ electric car charging stations in its public garage next to the soon bustling neighborhood corridor. 

Residents, office tenants, shoppers and travelers alike can visit the ground level courtyard and pool, accessed via public path connecting 4th & Hull Street. The concept provides true 24/7 living in one modern development, well-suited for the emerging neighborhood. The ground level activates all sides of the block, including a gym, ground floor retail, and street level accessed, 2-story lofts.
