upscale apartments, downtown style.

The historic Freemason district has always danced nimbly between historical and hip. You’ll step off the light rail onto a cobblestone street. You can buy a vintage book and read it while you torch last night’s indulgences at our fitness center (we blame the mermaids… and also the crab cakes). The Wainwright Downtown offers a living experience like no other. A delightfully bright future, a charming connection to the past.

don't hate me because i'm beautiful.

Your counter tops and fixtures have been specially chosen to give a contemporary look while paying homage to the building's grand past. Sleek details, modern turns, building amenities that fit the demands of its vibrant residents. Go ahead, invite your friends over; and when they’re done drooling over your place send them to the leasing office.

The grass is greener on the roof.

The Wainwright residents will have access to a club room, a fitness center, a cyber cafe and unparalleled views from the roof across the Elizabeth River, the Hague, and of course, Norfolk’s city skyline – one of the prettiest in Virginia. Our rooftop Sky Lounge is a party space like no other, and sure to turn your friends green. We’ve even carved out a little patch of earth and sky for your furry friends.

love thy neighborhood.

It’s impossible to resist the buzz of Norfolk, especially when you’re a little extra caffeinated courtesy of our friends at Cure Coffeehouse. Whether it’s a stroll over to the Chrysler for Cold Beer and Hot Glass, a short hop over to Harbor Park for a ball game in the Virginia sunshine, or a delightful stumble down Granby for a late night nosh. It’s a delightfully navigable city – all by foot.
