The Ferrell Historic Lofts, one of the oldest buildings on Main Street in downtown Danville, VA was converted in 2011 and reopened as premier loft apartments in the Danville River District in early 2012. This proud building built in the 1870s had not been occupied and had been deteriorating for several decades until it finally found a home with a group that was able to rescue and preserve it. North Carolina based Rehab Development and Washington D.C. based Level 2 Development joined forces to form Ferrell Historic Lofts, LLC in late 2010. Working with the City of Danville, Ferrell Historic Lofts was one of the pioneer River District revitalization efforts that has helped revive Danville’s downtown into the vibrant, charming and welcoming historic community that it is today.
This property consists of 13 market rate loft style apartments as well as 2 commercial/retail spaces at street level. The apartments are a nice mix of efficiency, 1, and 2 bedroom units occupying a portion of the basement and 1st floors, as well as the entire 2nd and 3rd floors. An elevator was added to the building in order to provide resident convenience. A dedicated parking lot immediately next to and behind the building is also provided for resident convenience. Unit finishes include hard wood floors, high ceilings, historic wood work, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplashes, and washer/dryer connections. Complimentary water, electricity, heating/cooling, trash removal, cable and internet services are all included in the rent rate. A complimentary fitness center is also available for resident’s use and enjoyment.
