Posted by   admin on    March 29, 2021

Retail service offerings continue to expand with the addition of real estate brokerage

HENRICO CO., VA., March 23, 2021 – Henrico-based Gumenick Properties is pleased to announce that Samson Properties and Cardinal Title has leased approximately 7,622 square feet in retail suites 145 and 150 of the Penstock Quarter building located at 5001 Libbie Mill East Boulevard at Libbie Mill – Midtown. The addition of this real estate brokerage illustrates a continued expansion of retail service offerings in the community.  Samson Properties plans to begin work on this space in the near future. While their new, permanent space is being built, the firm will open in a temporary location in the 2,717 square foot Suite 165 of the Penstock Quarter Building, adjacent to Solidcore and Capital Eye Care. Improvements to this temporary space will commence imminently and allow Samson Properties to open in the community in a limited capacity much sooner. Harrison Hall and Peter Vick of Colliers International represented Gumenick Properties, and Samson Properties represented the Tenants in the transaction.

Samson Properties is an independently-owned real estate brokerage headquartered in Chantilly, Virginia. It employs over 4,000 agents across more than 30 offices servicing the Virginia, Maryland and District of Columbia Regions. The firm’s areas of specialty include residential sales and leasing, land, investment properties, short-sales, foreclosures/bank-owned REOs, and commercial sales and leasing. “Samson Properties is thrilled to expand into the Richmond market. Richmond will be our 32nd location. When considering where to enter in the Richmond market we wanted to move into a location that our agents would love to go to work at everyday. A place they would be proud to call their office. We wanted great signage and visibility. We wanted a location that I could easily recruit agents into. We wanted a first class place to call our first home. We found all that and more at Libbie Mill. We found a beautiful town center that our agents and their clients could walk around and enjoy shopping, eating and the grounds. The location has ample parking for the in and out lifestyle of a Realtor. It is super convenient to get to off of 95 or 64.  We are thrilled to become partners at Libbie Mill and looking forward to hitting the Richmond area with a big splash,” said Donny Samson, CEO of Samson Properties, of the impending move into the Richmond market.

“We are thrilled to welcome Samson Properties and Cardinal Title to our expanding list of retail services at Libbie Mill - Midtown,” states Diane Tidwell, Gumenick Properties’ director of property management for Virginia. “Interest in commercial retail at Libbie Mill remains robust, and we expect this trend to continue throughout the year leading up to the opening of the development’s next apartment community, Wellsmith Apartments.” Wellsmith Apartments is a 349-unit apartment building that will offer a mix of studio, 1-, 1+ Den-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartment homes for rent, as well as dynamic amenity spaces for residents. There also continues to be strong demand for new-construction townhomes and condominiums at The Neighborhood at Libbie Mill with the construction of new phases to begin soon. In addition to the Samson Properties lease, retail progress at Libbie Mill - Midtown continues with Starbucks and 9Round recently opening at the new Corner Shops retail building, and Block Advisors soon to follow. Stables Market, Airrosti, and Pressery Modern Massage and Organic Spa are in construction planning phases and plan to open later this year.
