The Lucky Strike smokestack, an icon visible amongst the downtown Richmond skyline (and similarly in Durham, NC too), was constructed during the early 1900s as part of the city's Tobacco Row warehouses and Power Plant cigarette factory alongside the James River. The tobacco industry helped Richmond's economy bounce back within only a few years after the Great Depression thanks to the ease of shipping one of the state's largest cash crops via the river.
In the late 1980s the tobacco companies vacated the space and the warehouses now serve as a one of the cities largest adaptive reuse projects of loft apartments and office space. Still referred to as "Tobacco Row" and the "Power Plant factory," the smokestack still stands as an iconic Richmond landmark.
