RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries plans to move its headquarters from Richmond to a business park in Hanover County.
Developer Tom Kinter tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch that the department plans to break ground this summer for a new $10 million headquarters in the Northlake Business Park.
The department currently is housed in three aging buildings in Richmond. Department infrastructure director Larry Hart says it would cost more than $12 million to repair the buildings and make them more energy efficient.
Kint says the department's new headquarters is expected to open in July 2014.
The state acquired about 15 acres in the business park at a cost of more than $1 million.
