A big-name public company is looking for a large block of office space in Richmond, potentially as a new home for its headquarters.
Lumber Liquidators, currently headquartered about 40 miles east of Richmond in Toano, is seeking between 30,000 and 45,000 square feet of office space in the area, according to half a dozen brokers and real estate developers with direct knowledge of the company’s requirements.
Lumber Liquidators has, over the past several months, toured properties across the region.
The company has looked at spaces in and around Innsbrook, according to three sources. Highwoods Properties confirmed it sent a proposal to Lumber Liquidators in January for space at its Stony Point office park on the Southside.
Lumber Liquidators already has a small presence in Richmond with 6,800 square feet in an office building at 5211 W. Broad St. near Willow Lawn.
The company’s most likely destination is downtown Richmond, where it has toured both existing office space and historic rehab projects, according to several sources.
