Main 2525

Main 2525 is the name of the enormous apartment building going up on Main and 25th St Main. Walter Park Architects shared this update:

Did you know we design for new construction in addition to adaptive reuse and interior design? We do. And we’ve got a few of these new construction projects in the works that we’d like to share with you. Below is an article from May about 2525 E Main and a few extra renders from our files.

2525 E Main is a new 6-story apartment building in historic Tobacco Row with a 7,400 sf commercial space fronting E Main Street, 217 total apartments, and 240 parking spaces. The project is designed and managed by Nahum (Nate) Goodenow with work by architectural designer Sarah Hepler and interiors designed by Hope Taylor.

Organized in a series of striking modern frames with a striking entry corner featuring a 6-story wall of windows, the design and materials nod towards the neighborhood’s industrial past while remaining distinctly modern.

That intersection is too congested already and Pulse bus stop has created an even bigger bottleneck. Last week my friend was hit and seriously injured on his motorcycle because a driver didn’t see him behind the bus and turned right into him.

I maintain my stance on you either go all the way respecting and designing infills that look like they were always there historically or, go completely opposite and be ultra-modern if you wish the city to move in that direction… no hybrid in-between. Example… the new Dominion Power building downtown.

Freda Green-Bolling the people working on the property all park on Franklin Street and walk down the 26th street stairs to the job site. Guess what all the residents with more than 1 vehicle / guest are going to do….

Benjamin Butterworth Parking will definitely be tight. The traffic on Main Street an that area is going to be crazy. When you factor in Rocketts landing residents.?

Church Hill People’s News he’ll be okay but currently in a wheelchair and going in for his 2nd surgery on Friday. The accident is a symptom of Church Hill growing and the infrastructure not expanding with it. What started as congestion has evolved into some truly dangerous areas that could be alleviated with better planning and use of funds.

Katherine Jester I understand and agree with the congestion comment, but a considerable amount of the blame for your friend’s situation lies with the driver that hit him. You’re describing a driver that pulled a reckless maneuver similar to the man that hit my mother-in-law at 25th & Broad back in May. Impatient, inconsiderate, and someone who shouldn’t be behind the wheel. Unfortunately, the law provides more protection to reckless drivers than their victims. The driver that hit my mother in law got a slap on the wrist for failure to yield. My mother in law spent two months in… Read more »

Chris Houlihan the driver was obviously in the wrong but he wasn’t reckless, impatient or inconsiderate. He was horrified, stopped, stayed, and cooperated 100%. But I am really sorry to hear about your MIL! That is terrible.

What a monstrosity! That intersection is enough of a headache. Why couldn’t they build in a less congested area?

Rita Justice Austera according to the article the parking spaces onsite, exceed the number of residential units. If it’s like the space at Cary and Robinson streets, the spaces are reserved and customers may be allowed to park in residential spaces during the day until 4 or 5 p.m.

I live down here and I am telling you it is miserable. Parking is a nightmare. There is not enough street for so many people. If it has been this bad during construction with construction workers taking all of the street parking, I can’t imaging what it will be like with the overflow of residents with multiple cars & the retail space customers looking for parking. It is so congested now as it is, but hopefully they will include parking in the rent for the residents!

Does anyone know if they will have assigned parking that is included in their rent? What we have found is that these developments have the required number of parking spaces, but many of them go unused because they charge extra for them. This then creates parking congestion in the surrounding area.

It’s crazy how negative people are about this development, whether it is the architecture, parking or traffic. Part of living in a growing city that has limited developable land is realizing we need to add density whenever anything is new and as of now the land being vacant adds zero value to any of us. The developer is spending $40M on a high quality product and that will result in $400-500k a year in real estate taxes, which helps our tax base grow. This developer also will offer 20% of units to people making 80% of the median income, which… Read more »
