Anecdotal Information
Originally built to serve as a dormitory for the Piedmont Business College next door at 307-311 Rivermont, for many years it has been used as apartments. This property demarcates the boundary of the Rivermont Historic District which primarily extends along the avenue from here to Link Road. Rundown in recent years, in 2020 developer Tony West completed the extensive renovation of the property into 30 one bedroom apartments.
