Ghent Apartments for Rent

(hide neighborhood information)

Norfolk, an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia, is the state’s second-largest city behind Virginia Beach. Norfolk is one of nine cities and seven counties that constitute the Hampton Roads metro area, named for the large natural harbor of the same name.

The city is bordered to the west by the Elizabeth River and to the north by the Chesapeake Bay. Norfolk hosts several smaller communities and neighborhoods; among them is historic Ghent, a thriving, pedestrian-friendly community offering a unique cultural, shopping and dining experience.

Ghent is located in central Norfolk, minutes from downtown and the Norfolk Naval Station. The neighborhood’s main thoroughfares are Colley Avenue, Colonial Avenue, Granby Street, Olney Road and 21st Street. The area includes the neighborhoods of Ghent, West Ghent, East Ghent, Ghent Square and the Ghent Commercial district.

The neighborhood began its development in 1890 and originally sprawled across approximately 220 acres. Its south section by Smith Creek contained marshlands which were filled in, giving the shoreline a semicircular shape. The resulting street, Mowbray Arch, soon became the favored location for the stately houses of Norfolk’s middle- and upper-middle class residents; home sites made the best of the area’s waterfront location, providing views over the creek to the grass banks on the opposite shore. The Mowbray Arch area contains the highest concentration of houses built during the late 19th century.

Ghent offers residents an eclectic mix of housing with historic homes sharing fences with newer construction. Known as a favorite destination for the “creative class” the neighborhood is within walking distance to the commercial district and its unique shops, restaurants, bistros, art galleries and entertainment venues such as the Naro Cinema, which screens foreign and independent films. Doumar’s Cones and BBQ is known for having the world’s first ice cream cone machine.

Cultural attractions include Norfolk’s major art museum, the Chrysler Museum of Art and the Virginia Opera’s home stage, the Harrison Opera House. Ghent is also home to Norfolk’s largest medical complex containing Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Sentara Heart Hospital, Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters and Eastern Virginia Medical School.

The NET Connector operates as a transportation link between Downtown and Ghent, and also to The Tide, Norfolk’s light rail system.
