200 apartments proposed for Fulton

Fulton Hill Properties is working on bringing 200 market rate apartments to a new development around the former Robert Fulton School.

Presenting on Tuesday night at the Greater Fulton Hill Civic Association meeting, Juliellen Sarver described the design as “in development and changing.” The project will be a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments, with spaces for a gallery and a coffee shop, and underground parking.

One building of the project will cascade down the closed cobblestone street in front of the school. The other will be across Carlisle south of the school building. The proposal calls for reopening Northampton Street between Goddin Street and Carlisle Avenue.

I hope they reopen the cobblestone street and keep it cobblestone too!

Fulton is a residential area. These apartments don’t belong here any more than the proposed and now defunct idea for the 20 story Pear St apartment building. From the above images, the building look like they’ll be 5 stories, which in that vicinity makes them huge and overbearing. If Ms. Freund insists on development in that area how about some classy, iconic and appropriately sized single family homes that suit the neighborhood in style and scale? To answer my own question, because she seeks high-density to maximize how much money she can make without regard for the aesthetics of the… Read more »

um, Spacecat, as usual, you miss the point: “underground parking” was sited in the article. If you were at the meeting or bothered to get some information before flying off the handle, you’d know that there will be a 1:1 parking ratio. Also, Greater Fulton has ASKED for density in housing initiatives and wants market rate apartment communities. There’s an entire movement for this kind of development sparked by community leaders in FULTON. Sheesh

I strongly opposed Freund’s development of the Lofty, mainly because of density at the dead-ends of Broad and Marshall, but have to say I don’t see a problem here. It’s my understanding that she lives in the Fulton School complex, which she developed (has artist and studio spaces in addition to residential) so I am sure she is in-tune with what will work and not.

Its also my understanding that Ms. Freund is worried about building and then selling her properties- just like the Lava Lofts.

She builds, ignores CAR, goes to city council promising tax dollars and residents and gets her way, then dips out the picture.

She does not truely care about the area, she just cares about making a profit on the area.

@#3 One of the reasons Fulton Hill is appealing to me is because of the small neighborhood feel. Large apartment complexes don’t fit nicely into that environment with the density and traffic that ensues. What Ms. Freund has done with the Fulton Hill Studios is the kind of development that is smart and in keeping with the character of the neighborhood. But five story apartment buildings in Fulton? No. In Shockoe? Sure. You’re right, missed the mention of underground parking, but if the ratio is 1:1, that’s up to 200 cars driving out of there every morning. Seems like a… Read more »

I’m curious if there is any other online information regarding this development?

Also, whatever happened to the East End Theater apartments plan?

I agree with spacecat on his/her ideas about increased density and appreciation of the neighborhood. Something like this would be better on the other side of Williamsburg. Why? 1. It doesn’t fit the character of the neighborhood but rather fits the Rockett’s Landing mold. 2. The infrastructure of the nearby area currently cannot withstand such a dense apartment community just dropping in and I see changing the infrastructure to be a very difficult proposition. The proposed number of residences would come close to the number of houses in the nearby sixteen blocks. And with so many small streets, one way… Read more »
