FEATURED: Former Bank Tower Downtown Now Home to its First Residents
Commonwealth Architects has transformed the Central National Bank Building in Richmond, Virginia from a busy bank branch to a place many can now call home. Dating back to The Great Depression, the 23-story tower and attached annex is now called Deco at CNB, and is home to 200+ units, most with panoramic views of the city and ranging from 400-square-foot studios to 1,180-square-foot two-bedroom units.
“I have high expectations that the rehab will breathe new life into one of Richmond’s largest and most prominent deco buildings and bring vitality to a section of Richmond experiencing a visible turnaround, due in large measure to the utilization of state and federal rehabilitation tax credits,” said Julie V. Langan, director of the state agency.
The building, at 219 E. Broad St., is one of the largest historic tax credit projects in Richmond and the state, according to the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
