New Brick Historic Lofts to cut the ribbon March 20
SoVaNow.com / March 07, 2014Rehab Development, a Winston-Salem, N.C.-based developer specializing in downtown Main Street revitalization, historic preservation and successful public/private partnership formation, has completed construction on New Brick Historic Lofts in South Boston, a project that included both state and federal historic tax credits.
Located at 701 Jefferson Avenue, New Brick Historic Lofts afford premier residential spaces in the heart of downtown South Boston. During construction, state of the art green building techniques were incorporated to provide a desirable environment for residents. The building features twenty seven apartments for lease, fourteen of which are spacious two bedrooms, two bath townhouse lofts. 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.
