New Apartments Coming To The Warehouse District

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

NEWPORT NEWS—If you’ve ever wanted to live within walking distance of a craft beer brewery, your chance is coming soon. “The Yard,” located at the Walker-Wilkins-Bloxom Warehouse District on 23rd Street will have seven apartment units available starting July 1.

When completed, the converted warehouse that was originally constructed in 1906 will have 32 total apartments, including 29 one-bedroom units, 2 two-bedroom units, and one 2-bedroom loft. It will also have three business spaces, the first of which will be occupied by Benny’s Pizza, which is famous for their huge pizzas at affordable prices. As a bonus for people who want to be near the action, the building is located next door to Coastal Fermentory and just down the street from Ironclad Distillery.

Remodeled and refurbished by Provost Construction, the apartments are being offered by Divergence Real Estate. They will feature cement floors on the ground level and wood floors on the two levels above. Exposed brick throughout provides a nod to the history of the building. Three of the apartments share what used to be an elevator shaft, which has been removed, but the rails will remain intact.

For information on availability and leasing, contact Victor Bosak, REALTOR® at 757-427-4664 or

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
