What is the future of Virginia Center Commons and the area around it? Now that the mall has been sold and Henrico County has plans to put an indoor sports arena on part of the site, what other plans are in store for the mall and surrounding property? Should the mall remain as a shopping center? Should it have a combination of offices and apartments? What happens to the area near the mall - both in Henrico and Hanover counties?
