Former Massey HQ in Va. now an apartment building

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Massey Energy's former headquarters in Richmond is now an apartment building.

The Monument Cos. bought the four-story building in 2012 and converted it into 74 apartments. Thirty-one apartments have been leased and the first residents are moving into the building.

A principal in the company, Chris Johnson, tells the Richmond-Times Dispatch that The Monument Cos.' investment in the project is nearly $9 million. He says the cost is being offset with state and federal tax credits.

An historic district was expanded in 2012 to include the building and other structures in the area.

The building was constructed in 1951 and still bears the "Massey Building" cornerstone plaque.

Bristol-based Alpha Natural Resources acquired Massey in 2011.
