New Apartments Coming To The Warehouse District

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
