Groundbreaking was held yesterday for a 42-unit condominium being built in Belmont, near downtown. The location isn’t clear in the Progress story, but based on the sketch, it’s pretty close to the coal tower. The project is being headed by mega-developers Frank Stoner and Robert Hauser, known mostly for their extensive contributions to development of the suburban ring around Charlottesville. The three-story apartments are scheduled for completion by next spring. Jake Mooney has the story in today’s Progress.
