An enourmous, ambitious, several mille long steel railroad trestle, a floodwall, a path carved by shoes and wheels, and wachovia securities.

The four most prominent buildings being constructed in the city of Richmond: this waterside tower of "luxury condos," the previously mentioned Phillip Morris research center, a new Courthouse, and a new business building for Virignia Commonwealth University.

Affordable housing, decent jobs, community centers, socially useful production- of these one will find little.

The long Hull St. bridge across the James River, from downtown to the southside of Richmond. A grain elevator looms overhead.
