525 Apartments at Historic Kempsville

Construction is nearly complete and tenants are moving in.  525 is a new apartment community incorporating the an adaptive reuse of the existing Kempsville High School as lofts and a clubhouse along with two new buildings.

Located in the new Kempsville historic district and the intersection at a major traffic intersection, this large building tries to bring scale in detail to the site while supporting the goals of the community.
