UPDATE: Studio Row Apartments

Th 200+ apartment project at Fulton Hill Studios first reported back in February is still in the works.

From the most recent issue of the GFHCA’s Fall 2015 newsletter:

This project, once complete, will provide 242 workforce apartments, creative office space, a cafe, and a gallery. Phase I will consist of building two apartment buildings, while Phase II involves the second renovation of the historic Robert Fulton School.

Studio Row will improve the physical infrastructure of Greater Fulton by paving the Northampton paper street (as an extension of Northampton St.), providing street and building lighting, improving pedestrian infrastructure, and planting beautiful landscaping. Studio Row will provide the only market-rate rental units in the community.

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 kind of feel sorry for the folks who live on Goddin with this new development squashed up in there. Prime example of a developer milking every penny out of a piece of property.

The only way we in the Greater Fulton community will get the services and businesses that we need is to attract more people who want to live here. That determination was made during the Greater Fulton’s Future planning get initiative that the community conducted with the guidance of Virginia LISC several years ago. We would like a grocery store, a school, sidewalks, connections to the river, health care, better transit, a café and some better restaurant options. With the exception of schools, those community amenities and essential services are not provided by the government. They are made through private investment… Read more »

Well stated, Juliellen!

As far as “squashed up in there” that’s regulated by zoning rules and the building codes in terms of green/open space, density and proximity to property lines.

I wonder why building 2 is on a slant like that? I think it’d be much more appealing to conform to a more traditional street grid/lay out.
