Northampton County Board of Supervisors approved a special use permit for an event venue to be located in the old Edgerton warehouse in Cape Charles.
The D.L. Edgerton Seafood warehouse is located on the south side of Stone Road. It was built in 1909.
TRE Investments, LLC, in coordination with Rosemary Loft, LLC, have applied to rezone the existing TE-1 (Town Edge-1) zoning designation to TE-CG (Town Edge-Commercial General) for the purpose of establishing the event venue.
Events will be hosted inside the 10,000-square-foot building, and on the five-acres surrounding the venue. The applicants estimate the venue will hold up to 350 people.
Structural engineers have examined the warehouse, and while some issues were found, the overall bones were described as good and worth saving.
