Berkshire Chapel Hill

Berkshire Chapel Hill, formerly known as Village Plaza Apartments and Alexan Chapel Hill, is located just 3.5 miles from the UNC Chapel Hill campus and UNC Hospital, and is within walking distance of local restaurants, shopping and entertainment. The apartment community is also serviced by several local bus routes. This project includes 265 residential units; a multi-level parking deck; 13,560 square feet of retail space; a fire pit; a saltwater swimming pool with an entertainment area; bike repair and storage lockers; and a pet salon and grooming station.

This was the first project approved in the new Ephesus / Fordham Development District in Chapel Hill. The project helped establish the approval process, permitting forms and close out materials to obtain the certificate of occupancy. We worked with adjacent property owners to develop designs for shared streets, temporary parking areas and necessary construction easements. Permits were obtained through the Town of Chapel Hill; Orange County Erosion Control; and the Orange Water and Sewer Authority.
