Metromont Project Details

Project Overview

South Falls is a planned mixed-use development just steps from the banks of the James River in Richmond’s Manchester neighborhood. The initial phase is the construction of a 14-story, L-shaped building with 256 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units with river views.

The building features an amenity deck overlooking the falls of the James with a fitness facility, pool, pavilion building with kitchen, grilling stations and a technology-enabled outdoor seating area. It also will include 2,428 square feet of ground-level retail fronting the canal at the entryway of the development.

South Falls Tower utilizes Metromont Corporation’s MetroDeck total precast flooring system and its exterior façade features a striking white concrete mix designed to stand out from the typical brick structures of Richmond.

Our Richmond manufacturing facility produced 314,544 SF of precast concrete for the 14-story, L-shaped apartment tower and accompanying parking garage, which includes an amenity deck with a pool overlooking the river. South Falls I is the second apartment tower and garage project Metromont has recently produced in Richmond for owner WVS Companies LLC with project team KBS, Inc., Walter Parks Architect, and Speight, Marshall & Francis, P.C.

"Metromont was an excellent partner and worked seamlessly, closely to collaborate almost as an extension of our design team. It’s incredible how quickly it all came together.”

"The precast concrete design was able to meet the stringent performance requirements of the structure while providing an aesthetically pleasing, sustainable final product at an affordable price point."

"Metromont’s team embraced our idea and got their whole team on board. It’s one thing for sales managers to want to make architects happy, but to have the plant manager, the finishing crew foreman and engineers fully engaged is something else. Metromont was extremely cooperative – the project was a win-win for everyone.”
