RICHMOND, Va. — Three years after its previous effort came up short in Short Pump, a national used-car retailer that’s been revving up its local presence is now eyeing the city for one of its signature “car vending machine” towers.

A description states the project would involve construction of a 12-tier “Carvana Vehicle Vending Machine” and office space, and demolition of a 17,000-square-foot office building on the site.
