Our building, built in 1915, was Virginia’s oldest auto dealership called F.A. Roethke DeSoto. It underwent an extensive historic renovation, beginning in January 2014, cumulating in the design of Fort Tar Lofts. The preservation of this historical structure is noted by the industrial finishes found in each apartment, which include such features as original concrete flooring, exposed brick and masonry walls, 14-ft ceilings and expansive 9-foot windows that make the interior of these apartments like no other in Hampton Roads, all with 1st floor on-site secured garage parking.
