Condominiums to be built across from law school
March 18, 2008
The Williamsburg City Council approved the construction of a condominium project across from the Marshall-Wythe School of Law, according to the Mar. 15 issue of the Daily Press. The project was originally presented in January, and while council members supported the construction of condominiums in the area, they did not approve the design.
p. Some council members called the condominium “ugly,” while others insisted that the building will be too large for the smaller residential area that surrounds it.
p. Plans for the 10 condominiums were revised so that there were fewer double windows and balconies facing South Henry St.. The three-story brick building will also be largely hidden from the street by a line of trees.
