925 East Market Street is an approved 5-story, 56-unit apartment building with 18,690 square feet of commercial space and a two-level parking garage. It was recommended for approval by a 5-2 vote of the Planning Commission on August 13, 2013[1][2] and approved by City Council 4-1 on October 7, 2013 (Kathy Galvin dissenting).[3] As of September 2014, developers CMB Development and Woodard Properties had not submitted a site plan to the Planning Commission.[4]

The Martha Jefferson Neighborhood Association expressed opposition to the proposal, citing traffic on Locust Avenue.[5]

The previous occupant of the site, ABC Preschool, moved to 1015 E Market St in preparation for the construction.

In September 2018, Guy Blundon of CMB said construction should begin soon, after being held up by his other projects in Richmond and Woodard's work on the West2nd proposal.[6]
