Regional Economy Benefits

Locating your business, office space, or retail establishment in Colonial Heights offers a number of strategic advantages. The regional nature of our economy has drawn key retailers, site selection firms, brokers, developers, and regional offices to the city, ensuring sales and business success. The city’s location as part of the Richmond-Petersburg MSA is ideally situated as a regional retail and business office center. At the crossroads of I-95, I-85, and Rt. 460, the city is very accessible for businesses, retailers, and travelers alike.

One-on-One Attention

With the rise of competitive news, blogs, and social media, we find that one can still rely on communicating the old-fashioned way: face-to-face. We are a city in a region on the cusp of growth, but we still like to work with our regional partners, brokers, real estate managers, and developers one-on-one as our friends and neighbors.
