More pricey condos in Hoo-ville
Tis the season for another mammoth condo in student-ville. Three days before Christmas, "The Barringer at Monroe Lane" held a topping-off ceremony to celebrate the final piece of structural steel on its seventh story.
Designed by Daggett & Grigg Architects, and developed by Jim and Cynthia Stultz, the 50-unit Barringer is located adjacent to UVA's hospital. Units range in price from $250,000 to $750,000 on five floors atop two levels of structured parking, bringing the total square footage of the building to 79,230.
Charlottesville is in the midst of a student-area condo flurry with one gated student community, the Woodlands, actually opening a sales office on the Downtown Mall.
Martin Horn, the locally based construction company building the Barringer, expects to finish work in August. Until then, eager web-surfers can check out the 24-hour webcam to keep tabs on the progress.
