NORFOLK, Va — A former Boys and Girls Club’s remodel into apartments continues as more historic touches are added to the structure.
On Monday, Norfolk’s Architectural Review Board approved exterior renovations to the structure that would help it look like it did back in the 1950s when it was new. Appropriate era windows and canopies are expected to be added.
The building first opened in 1949 as home of the Norfolk Boys Club and quickly had 1,000 members, according to city records. The Boys and Girls Club left the facility in 2001 and it has been abandoned ever since.
Monument Development Two, LLC., based out of Richmond, is leading the redevelopment effort that will place 41 apartments into space that used to be a gymnasium, pool and gaming rooms.
