Originally built in 1923, the historic Parsons Building (center image) in downtown Cape Charles Virginia is planned to be restored. The project will create boutique retail space in three bays at the ground floor, two ground level accessible dwelling units and six modern condos on the second and third floors with views across to the Chesapeake Bay.
This renovation will complete the restoration of the entire street of Mason Avenue, which has thrived in the past two years as the town has been revitalized after being largely abandoned since the 1950s.
Cape Charles was founded as the Southern Terminus of the New York, Philadelphia, and Norfolk Railroad Company in 1884 where southbound North Eastern travelers transferred to ferry boat for transport to Norfolk across the bay.
