The Glades, which was envisioned as a permanent park for food trucks to set up and serve nearby office workers and families at 4991 Lake Brook Drive, is no longer on the table.

The scrapped plans were confirmed recently by Jane DuFrane, Richmond market leader for Highwoods Properties, which owns the Lake Brook site.

Phu Nguyen, the local entrepreneur who had proposed The Glades concept, would not comment for this story.

In addition to food trucks, The Glades was to feature a farmers market, concerts and a kids play area in addition to seating and decor.
