Loved living at the James! It was centrally located, very clean, modern building. The staff was amazing and helped with everything along the way. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for the wonderful review and recommendation!


In all honestly, The James Apartments is the most INVASIVE place I have ever lived, and Ive lived a lot of places. Every other month they do work. All of the access panels are in your closets and built behind places you would need to put furniture, and every other month they have to get to ALL of them. Its like Im re-moving into my apartment every other month with how much I have to rearrange furniture for them to access them. I would never recommend living here, ever. Its such a waste of money. The workers are inconsiderate: wear dirty boots that leave tracks you have to mop up after, set up ladders and set their equipment on all of your furniture. I have NEVER experienced such lack of regard for personal space. I feel like I live in a dorm doing routine security checks, making sure no one is smoking weed or having sex. I would recommended literally ANY crummy complex/unsafe neighborhood over this because at least living in squalor youd have some privacy We are moving in three weeks, but changing the air filter for the 6th time this year just couldnt wait and neither could checking our water pressure?? They tout convenience and I can say very plainly: thats a lie.

Property Details

The James Apartments

Contemporary. Chic. Elegant.
Built in 1906, this newly reworked and renamed The James Apartments, once known as the James Madison Hotel, is a Boutique Style Apartment Community that is simply breathtaking; you will want to be one of the lucky few to live here. You are steps away from the Grilled Cheese Bistro and The Greenhouse Kitchen, conveniently located on the 1st floor. Anytime you crave a gourmet meal, all you need to do is walk downstairs! How much easier could it be to indulge in the goodie lifestyle? Bored with your life and times in the suburbs? The James could be just your type.

Your Story Unfolds with a Signature
We have spared no expense bringing back the glamour to The James. We know while you'll appreciate the vintage look of the building, you'll also value the upgrades too. The Stunning Grand Piano Lounge with Mosaic-Terrazzo tile will make you feel like a super star greeting your guests in the lobby. Loft and Penthouse apartment styles are available and if you want the best of the best, the top floor of The James is where you will want to be. You will value the upgraded windows and well insulated walls. Dining In? Whip up a masterpiece in your Gourmet Kitchen outfitted with Lavish Quartz Countertops, Stainless Steel appliances with a Designer Stainless Steel Range Hood, along with Custom Cabinets and Brushed Nickel Hardware. Floor plans ranging from cozy studio (perfect for a city escape) 1 & 2 Bedroom to the sweet penthouse suite The James is the perfect match.

Plot your Next Move
The James has always sparkled against the Norfolk skyline, but the renovation and remodel has taken it into the stratosphere. Spacious apartments are flooded with light and no expense was spared in the finishes and amenities. Onsite Concierge service, high speed resident elevators, and key fob-controlled access building along with a 24/7 Fitness Center and much more. You're in the heart of Downtown so everything you may need or want are just steps away. Relax, you live at The James.
