RICHMOND, Va. -- Dominion Energy's new Richmond headquarters is shining as a bright blue beacon of thanks to healthcare heroes working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 global health crisis.

"You've reminded us all about what it means to be a hero," company officials tweeted. "Thank you!"

"It will remain blue for the coming weeks to thank and pay tribute to the nurses, doctors and others working during the pandemic," Dominion Energy officials said Sunday.

Since the 417-foot building opened in 2019, it has been illuminated in different colors for various holidays, company officials said.

That building, dubbed Canal Place, was developed by Richmond’s Hourigan Construction and Chicago-based Clayco.

The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation donated $1 million last month to COVID-19 relief efforts locally and across the U.S.
