A New Purpose for an Old Building


At the corner of Ninth and Main streets sits a spectacularly built gem in the heart of historic downtown Lynchburg. The six-story Krise building, erected in 1905, was constructed as the city’s first “skyscraper,” with a bank on its first floor and offices above. Over a century later, the Krise is being morphed into 21 apartments: eight one-bedrooms, 11 two-bedrooms, and two three-bedrooms. The Krise will also include four retail spaces on the ground floor and two penthouses on the top.
