“Most of the people renting our apartments are of the millennial generation [those born between 1980 and the mid-2000s]. It seems like every time we show a unit, they ask about light rail and public transportation. Downtown Norfolk is in a perfect position to benefit from what these folks are looking for,” said Buddy Gadams, a developer with Marathon Development Group.
Once filled with the offices of lawyers and bankers, today this 100+ year-old building is home to 136 of the most modern apartments in Hampton Roads, with rents ranging from $905 to $1,700 a month.
Apartment options in The Law Building include studio and one- and two-bedroom floor plans that are popular with Norfolk’s young professionals; plus the monthly rent includes one parking space per unit. Also attractive is the location, a short walk from the light rail stop, Town Point Park, MacArthur Center and Nauticus. Commercial tenants include The Vineyards and Smoothie King, and the largest Starbucks on the East Coast will open there in February 2016.
