WILLIAMSBURG-Midtown Row will host a grand opening celebration for the new mixed-used development complex at the corner of Richmond Road and Lafayette Street in September.

The celebration will take place Friday, September 24, from 4pm to 7pm at 1260 Richmond Road.

Construction for Midtown Row, which includes apartment buildings as well as new retail shops and restaurants, first began in 2019. Residents began moving into the apartment buildings in May.

Midtown Row’s grand opening festivities will take place on the Village Green and include live music from Brasswind, giveaways, and more.  Featured food trucks will be Don Chido, NOSH, and Mangata Coffee as well as Matchsticks BBQ, which will soon open a brick-and-mortar restaurant in Midtown Row. Alewerks Brewing Company and Silver Hand Meadery will also be a part of the event.

The event is free and open to the public. All food and beverages will be available for purchase. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs. No outside coolers will be permitted.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
