One of Richmond's first skyscrapers is being converted into apartments. The First National Bank building at Ninth and Main streets is undergoing a $30 million renovation to turn it into 154 apartments on the upper 18 floors and commercial space on the ground level. The apartment building is expected to open later this year, a spokesman for Drucker & Falk, a Newport News based real estate management company, said Monday. "The goal is late November or the first part of December," said Andrew Chisholm, director of mid-Atlantic multifamily for Drucker & Falk.
The one-, two- and three-bedroom units will range from 562 square feet to 2,235 square feet. Rents have not been determined, Chisholm said.
