New Afton Inn Plans Reviewed
12 July 2018 News
The new plan for the renovation and partial demolition of the Afton Inn in Front Royal has been approved by the town’s Board of Architectural Review.
The plan includes the demolition of a non-historic addition that was made to the building facing North Royal Avenue, as well as the construction of two new additions. One of the new additions will be three stories high and face Crescent Street; it will feature a ground-floor commercial space, four apartments, and office space. The other addition, just one story tall, will feature an exterior “living wall” covered in plants. Meanwhile, the ground floor of the original historic building will be renovated to include a ground-floor cafe as well as an outdoor seating area.
An architect for the firm handling the project, Carter + Architecture PLC., estimated that it will take around 14 months to complete. Any changes to the plan, as well as minor details such as color and signage, will be approved by the Board before construction as well.
