In the picture showing two buildings- the one on the left is 708 Riverside Ave and the one on the right is 712 Riverside Ave in between was 710 Riverside(a house). 712 Riverside belongs to College of the Albemarle (COA) along with the former 710 Riverside. 708 Riverside (fmr Riverside Boat Works) belongs to Riverside Houses LLC along with 702 Riverside (which is the wood building that sits on the water near the Charles Creek Bridge). The Vacant space between the water and 708 Riverside was 706 Riverside Avenue. In order on Riverside 702-building on water, 706 vacant space, 708 brick front with large windows, 710 vacant space, 712 COA property.

If grants are ever of an acceptable nature,

this is surely one of the times, if not the only time. All citizens should have access to their navigable waters. In all reality this is a transportation issue even though it will be used for pleasure purposes more than anything else.

Great news

for boaters and the city!
