RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Richmond-based energy conglomerate Dominion Resources plans to replace a downtown office building with a new tower to enrich the city’s skyline.

Carter Reid, a Dominion senior vice president, told employees Tuesday the Richmond Plaza office building on Cary Street will be demolished within a year. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1RDzOGi ) it will be replaced by a yet-to-be-designed office building that will include underground parking, retail space and public areas.

Dominion is currently considering how to renovate, rebuild or sell property at four of its other sites within Richmond. It purchased the soon-to-be-demolished Richmond Plaza building in 2011.

Reid says Dominion will meet with top city officials and other downtown stakeholders to help the company come up with a design plan that will improve the downtown area.
