Lynchburg's first skyscraper, The Krise, held the first of three open houses Friday welcoming visitors in to see the seven-story building on the corner of 9th and Main streets. The 40,000 square-foot building was constructed in 1905 and has been restored into 21 luxury loft-living apartments.
The Krise will be the first apartment building in Lynchburg to utilize the services of a bellhop. Valet parking, trash removal, grocery and fresh produce delivery are only a few of the concierge services provided. The property has a private parking lot with surveillance, keyless building entry system and personalized bellhop attention.
“Restoring the building and placing it into Lynchburg’s luxury loft living marketplace has been a labor of love designed to reestablish the structure to its former place of prominence,” Gregory McCauley, partner of The Krise building owner organization, said in a news release.
The next open houses will be held July 24 and Aug. 7.
