Who We Are

Josh White, owner of Pietro Street Lofts and Richwood Lofts

 Josh White became part of the Morgantown Modern Group with his purchase of The Pietro Street Lofts in 2014 and recently the Richwood Lofts in 2015.  Kris and Josh have known each other for years and both are excited about working together to make Morgantown Modern the best it can be.  Mr. White is a lifetime Morgantown resident and graduate of West Virginia University who understands the process of evolving from student to professional in a University town.  As an associate broker in Real Estate sales and manager of Hopewell Properties, he has a broad understanding of the industry.  Mr White is excited to be part of the unique Morgantown Modern brand, and ultimately hopes to work with his tenants to help them become homeowners in the Morgantown Community. 

Morgantown Modern is a unique collection of architectural, loft-style residences that offer a refreshing living option for the Morgantown area. Our properties are all designed with green living in mind, having been thoughtfully rehabilitated or newly-built to provide a style and design ethos that is unexampled in Northern West Virginia.  Our leasing is typically year-long, from May 15 to May 15.  We do sometimes have properties that become available at other times, so please view our 'Availabilities' link to see what may be offered.  All prices are per unit, per month.


Kris Knowles, developer and owner of The FireHouse and Woodburn Lofts

The developer of our entire property portfolio is Kris Knowles, a Morgantown native who has spent the past ten years fine-tuning our product. A licensed WV contractor, Mr. Knowles has designed, built, or renovated all of our properties and continues to play a hands-on role in the daily management of the business. Morgantown Modern has living solutions to fit different budgets and square footage requirements. We look forward to working with you and to helping you find the residence that best suits your needs.
