ROPEWALK: We would like to express our strong support for this project, which may a last chance to preserve one of America’s most historic complexes and one of the last remaining historic Ropewalks. For over 40 years this beautiful building has been threatened by lack of maintenance and neglect. In spite of the preservation challenges of this building redevelopment, the Architect and Developer (Frontier Enterprises) have provided unique solutions to enable development as townhouses.
