RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Dominion Resources Inc. is planning to build a new 20-story office tower in downtown Richmond.

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1XnBJSQ ) that the energy company filed development plans with the city this week to tear down its six-story office structure on Sixth Street and build the new tower in its place.

Workers are expected to begin tearing down the building in late June. That building has been vacant for at least a year.

Construction on the new building is expected to be done in 2019.

The new building will have 17 office floors, retail space and floors for parking.

Thomas Farrell II, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Dominion says the company believes the building will both retain thousands of employees downtown and add to Richmond’s “already impressive skyline.”
