Property description

Located within the limits of the Norfolk Arts District, this studio apartment is within walking distance to many restaurants and entertainment venues in Downtown Norfolk. It is located within two miles of Eastern Virginia Medical School, Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters and Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Norfolk Naval and Portsmouth Naval are a short drive away.

The building itself, built in 1915, was Virginia's oldest auto dealership called F.A. Roethke DeSoto. It has recently undergone an extensive historic renovation cumulating in the design of Fort Tar Lofts. The preservation of this historical structure is noted by the industrial finishes found in this studio, which include such features as original concrete flooring, exposed brick and masonry walls, 14-ft ceilings and expansive 9-foot windows that make the interior of this studio like no other in Hampton Roads, all with 1st floor on-site secured garage parking.

Our convenient location is less than a five minute walk to the Chrysler Museum, Chrysler Hall and The Harrison Opera House. Downtown Norfolk, with its many exciting restaurants, superb night life and premier shopping is located just a half mile away, as well. The Tide, Norfolk's new light rail system, which can be used to easily travel anywhere throughout downtown Norfolk and into Virginia Beach is nearby as well.
