As the primary realtor for the Nolde units, Meitz may seem a little biased regarding the renovation of the bakery, but as a former history teacher, he seems to be as interested in bringing new life to the historical area as he does about selling condos, which start at around $200,000.
“When you talk about what separates us here [from other new condo projects in Richmond], the surrounding neighborhood is probably the biggest deal,” Meitz recently said while showing one of the units facing Broad Street. “This is not just an apartment building. This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the country. Going back to when I was teaching history, if I said, ‘Give me liberty,’ even if [the students] weren’t passing their [Standards of Learning] tests, they could finish that quote. And you can see St. John’s [Church] right out your window.”
