The remaining thirteen units are beautiful one bedroom, one to one and a half bath flats.

"This project was a lot of fun. We believe the effort of the entire project team, at every level, shines through when you walk through this building," said Patrick Reilly, Principal at Rehab Development. "The original constructors of this building should be commended for their fine work all those years ago, as well as the Town of South Boston's leadership for their vision and support. We look forward to continuing to work on buildings in the area and helping preserve more of the incredible architectural history of Halifax County."

New Brick Historic Lofts amenities include: large windows in all units, loft designs that take advantage of the 17 plus foot ceilings, original exposed wooden truss system, beautiful hardwood floors, exposed historic brick, high ceilings with dropped ceiling fans, granite countertops, ceramic tile backsplashes, energy efficient stainless steel appliances, energy efficient heating/air units, washer/dryer hookups in all units, extra locked storage space, gym, community laundry room and more!

Tobacco was an integral part of the southern Virginia economy from the late-nineteenth century through the mid-to-late twentieth century. New Brick Historic Lofts is one of the only remaining tobacco warehouses in Halifax County. The building is typical of tobacco warehouses and auction houses of the time, which were utilitarian structures, unfinished in the interior, but with many skylights to provide enough light for buyers to inspect the tobacco. New Brick Historic Lofts were recently restored by Rehab Builders, Inc., a Winston-Salem, N.C. based design-build contractor specializing in the rehabilitation of historically significant buildings.

New Brick Historic Lofts are now leasing. Any person who signs a 14-month lease before March 31, 2014, will receive half off their first month's rent. More information about the lofts can be found at For leasing information, please call 434-352-1180 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The developers are looking for historic photographs of the building and individuals working in the building. New Brick Historic Lofts hopes to honor the history of the building by creating a "history wall" in the newly renovated building. Select photos will be scanned, framed and displayed.
