Kelton Station Apartments, Williamsburg: under construction

Adrienne and her team, led by Ray Gaines are working on luxury living communities around the commonwealth. One that is now under construction is Kelton Station Apartments, a 204 unit Earthcraft Multifamily project. Located in Lightfoot, just north of Williamsburg, Va, this community is anticipating opening in early 2021. The project contractor is KBS.

I asked Adrienne to describe the project and process for the design: Given the beautiful weather in that part of Virginia, we really focused on creating spaces for enjoying the outdoors.  These units have larger decks than most of our communities, and they are all screened to create a more comfortable living space.  The clubhouse contains a large wrap-around front porch, and a large rear screened porch that overlooks the pool.  Amenities such as the open air grilling pavilion, the fenced dog park, and the covered bike storage buildings further encourage outdoor enjoyment.

This is our first multi-family project in Hampton Roads. With most of our luxury communities, there has been a struggle to keep the site accessible due to the slopes from our central Virginia hills and Shenandoah mountains.  With this project, our site was so flat that the challenge became creating enough slope to keep the water flowing to the correct places, and away from our buildings.  It was really interesting for us to have to think about site planning in a different way.

This project was really exciting for me especially because my family lives in this area.  My niece would deliver project updates every time she rode by in the car.  I surprised the contractors a couple of times by knowing what was going on on-site before we had gotten their updates because I had an excited 7-year-old call to tell me about what new equipment had arrived or that there were new walls going up.

This is just one of many Earthcraft multi-family luxury living communities in process from the Charlottesville team. If you have a multi-family project in mind, reach out and we may be able to help.

Does your apartment create a sense of community?

The design of an apartment building is not often discussed in the world of architects. Many developers use cheap materials that will not last very long, amenities are used to attract tenants, and lets face it, usually the rent is the final criteria for those selecting a place to live. However, we take a different approach. Our clients want to create places that are fun to live in, will last a long time, and offer those living there a sense of community.

We have done a lot of multi-family projects over the years with a variety of styles. As our latest project breaks ground in Augusta County, I am wondering which one from the past is a favorite of yours. Let me know which you prefer by commenting below in the comments section.
