View of former Philip Morris tobacco plant that Richmond Public Schools and J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College hope to turn into a new technical school for students to train in fields ranging from auto mechanics to construction and advanced manufacturing. Altria donated the vacant plant at 2325 Maury St. three years ago to RPS, which could not afford the potential $40 million renovation cost. Reynolds is looking to gain state support for the project.
