RICHMOND, Va. ( – A Midlothian developer with big plans for the corner of Broad and Boulevard has expanded its holdings in the area.

The Rebkee Company on Dec. 21 bought the shuttered Bill’s Barbecue at 927 Myers St. for $775,000. The property is 1.3 acres and abuts the former Interbake cookie factory, which the developer plans to transform into 178 apartments.

“We don’t have any immediate plans for anything,” said Rob Hargett, a principal at Rebkee, of the former Bill’s Barbecue location. “I think I can reuse the building though, which is why I paid so much for it.”
