Washington, DC-based real estate developer and investor Gary Nordheimer and partners convert a mid-twentieth century factory in Richmond’s Scott’s Addition historic district into 31 contemporary loft apartments.
Online PR News – 21-April-2010 – – Washington, DC-based real estate developer and investor Gary Nordheimer and partners recently completed conversion of a mid-twentieth century factory in Richmond’s Scott’s Addition historic district into 31 contemporary loft apartments. The Altamont apartments mark the latest in an ongoing urban renewal project aimed at turning the former warehouse district into a thriving residential and commercial neighborhood. Apartments at the former Breyer’s Ice Cream factory are now 100% leased.
A long-time Washington-based developer and financier, Gary Nordheimer has focused recent real estate efforts on redeveloping old or neglected properties. “The ‘bones’ of these warehouse spaces are perfect for modern living spaces,” says Nordheimer, who is currently reviewing other warehouse conversion opportunities in Virginia and Washington, D.C. “We have an obligation to preserve these viable structures,” he says, “and an opportunity to restore them as community assets.”
Nordheimer and partners are equally committed to socially responsible development, largely in urban spaces. The Altamont was restored with great care given to its original architectural integrity and, at the same time, adhering to modern green building principles. The developers took pains during renovation to incorporate eco-conscious building materials and to recycle materials from the original structure. Leasing information is available at www.urbanrichprop.com.
