The Hopewell Lofts is the beautiful conversion of the historic James E. Mallonee Middle School (c. 1925) in downtown Hopewell, Virginia.
Just five miles from Fort Lee and a stone’s throw from the James River, Hopewell Lofts is within immediate walking distance to shops and restaurants, as well as the Tri-city’s rich Antebellum history. The building is adjacent to Merner Field, an active sports venue for the entire Hopewell community.
Built on a campus-like setting ringed by mature live oak trees, the Lofts feature high ceilings, hardwood floors and remarkable natural light.
There are 50 apartment homes that enjoy a clubroom space in the historic auditorium, on-site storage, free on-site parking, refinished terrazzo floors, and some old chalkboards too!
As part of the redevelopment, the property was individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the project utilized federal and state historic rehabilitation tax credits. The Historic Hopewell Foundation named the Hopewell Lofts the best preservation project of 2010.
