DANVILLE – The City of Danville announced today that the Downtown Danville Association (DDA) will be hosting its January Mixer on Thursday, January 19 from 5-7pm at the Ferrell Historic Lofts, located at 533 Main St. The Mixers have become a popular networking opportunity for downtown stakeholders and for the general public interested in the latest downtown developments. They are held bi-monthly at downtown locations, are free of charge, and are open to the public.
The DDA is a not-for-profit, 501c3 organization made up of 18 board members. The group’s mission is to assist in the River District marketing effort. DDA President Robert Brooks commented, “I am thrilled to see this building come back to life. The DDA looks forward to working with the developers in any capacity to ensure the project’s success.”
In late 2010, Rehab Development of Winston-Salem, NC partnered with Level2 Development of Washington, DC to form the Ferrell Historic Lofts, LLC and redevelop the long vacant Ferrell Building, formerly known as the Tuxedo building, located at 533 Main St. Construction began immediately, transforming this vacant, blighted building into 13 market-rate apartments throughout the building and 2 street level retail spaces. The building is now completely finished and several units will be on display during the Mixer. “We believe this project is generating much of its public interest because the Ferrell Building is truly a piece of the heart and history of downtown Danville. The unique living spaces, attractive lease rates (which include all utilities/cable/internet), and location in the burgeoning River District create a fabulous downtown living environment”, stated building co-owner and project manager, Patrick Reilly. “One unit has already been pre-leased and I anticipate the remaining units will rent quickly.”
