HOME REMODELING SHOW
TO FEATURE TOURS OF URBAN RESIDENCES
Three downtown condominium developments
will be featured stops on the walking tours of downtown Norfolk
during Tidewater Builders Association’s New Home & Remodeling
Show & Tour.
The show, scheduled for May 4-7 at the
Scope Exhibition Hall, is designed to highlight ideas for a new
home or remodeling project.
With the expansive revitalization that is
currently taking place in the downtown Norfolk
area, the downtown walking tours are intended to give show visitors
an up-close look at urban living options at it’s best.
“People will be blown away!”
remarks Jason Dodd, Vice President of Marketing for Marathon Development,
builders of Granby Tower, one of the featured tour stops.
At the Granby Tower, visitors will be treated to a fully interactive
display of the condominium floor plans and breathtaking bird’s
eye views of the downtown area that residents of the 31-story, 300-unit
luxury skyscraper will enjoy.
Tour participants will also have a chance
to walk through a completely furnished one bedroom, two bathroom
plus office model of a Granby Tower condominium.
Other sites on the tour include The Rotunda
and St. Paul’s Place condominiums, both being developed by
Wermers Development Inc.
Only 66 fortunate residents will be able
to call The Rotunda home. This long-time Norfolk landmark will comprise
loft-style condominiums in the heart of the downtown shopping district,
adjacent to MacArthur Center.
With it’s unique circular architecture
and prime location, The Rotunda will offer those on the tours a
chance to see the detailed floor plans of the condominiums and large
scale photographs of the stunning views that will be just outside
the huge picture windows of the building.
St. Paul’s Place,
located next to The Rotunda, is a community of 90 condominiums consisting
of The Flats, fashioned after wealthy merchant housing from the
18th century; and The Lofts, loft-style condominiums.
Visitors will tour a completely
furnished loft, showcasing a more industrial style of residence,
including exposed duct work and urban décor.
Angela Swygert, Marketing
Manager for Wermers Development says, “These tours will provide
a unique opportunity for people to see and experience the idea of
urban living; upscale, sophisticated residences with the convenience
of being within walking distance of numerous retail shopes, dining
establishments and entertainment venues.”
Show-goers will also have
an opportunity to visit exhibit booths hosted by area remodelers
and gain valuable information regarding home renovation projects.
Local new home development companies, window and door experts and
specialists in home renovation will all be featured at the area’s
only downtown exhibit show.
