Premiere Apartments is a proposed housing development in Albemarle County that three housing nonprofits are collaborating on to bring up to 140 housing units directly on U.S. 29 at the site of a current hotel.

The nonprofit developers are asking for a higher level of residential density that is recommended in the Comprehensive Plan, as well as a waiver from providing the amount of parking required under the county’s ordinance.
