CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The halls of Glenwood Elementary will soon be empty, and an out-of-state developer is already hoping to transform the property on Charleston's West Side.

AU Associates has contacted the Kanawha County Board of Education. They're interested in buying the property to build senior housing.

The group specializes in turning historic buildings into affordable housing.

The company wants to turn the old school property into 28 apartments.

The school will be vacant when Glenwood students move to the new West Side Elementary.
