Construction is really picking up at the 1200 block of Hull Street. The crane in the image was installing HVAC units on the roof of 1213 Hull Street just this morning.
This particualr building was originally the Jones-Green Shoe Company in the early 1900s. It also converted to Singer sewing machine store as evidenced by the pictures below. The building converted to Richmond Christian’s Charity Family Services store in the 1980s until it was eventually boarded up.
Once renovated, the building will contain 1 bedroom apartments and 1,100 square feet of retail/commercial at the front. Construction is expected to be complete in the late summer/early fall.
