Ledbury moving downtown Richmond headquarters, storefront to Arts District
Richmond-based menswear brand Ledbury is relocating its downtown headquarters and storefront from Shockoe Bottom to 315 W. Broad St. in the Arts District, one block from The Quirk Hotel.
Ledbury will move into the three-floor, 11,700-square-foot space in August. The company’s current headquarters and storefront at 117 S. 14th St. is roughly 7,500 square feet.
At street level, the first-floor storefront will open to a 2,000-square-foot retail store, slated to open in September. The second and third floors will be reserved for the Ledbury team’s offices.
“We are building out a striking flagship store, with a private made-to-measure lounge, outdoor courtyard and dedicated, free parking lot,” Ledbury co-founder and CEO Paul Trible, said in a statement.
Ledbury’s second Richmond store, on Patterson Avenue in the Near West End, will remain open, though the in-house production workshop will move to the new West Broad Street headquarters, allowing customers to watch craftsmen construct shirts as they shop.
SMBW, responsible for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts expansion and Main Street Station renovation, is serving as the project’s designer and architect.
The 315 W. Broad St. building, owned by Presidents’ Walk Properties LLC, is being restored to its original condition, while the building interior is being “crafted to enrich the Ledbury experience,” the company says in a news release.
Ledbury is a Richmond-based luxury shirtmaker and menswear brand that is best known for dress and casual shirts. The company was founded in 2009.
