Rehab Development in partnership with Destination Downtown South Boston has won the 2014 Virginia Main Street Special Achievement Award and the 2014 Virginia Downtown Development Association Award of Excellence for the New Brick Historic Lofts project.
Rehab Development is a Winston-Salem, North Carolina, based developer specializing in downtown Main Street revitalization, historic preservation and successful public/private partnership formation, and
Destination Downtown South Boston is a 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer-based Virginia Main Street Organization dedicated to the economic and cultural revitalization of downtown South Boston.
"We are so excited that this project received statewide recognition," said Tamyra Vest, executive director of Destination Downtown South Boston. "Finding a developer like Rehab Development was a dream come true as they shared our desire to preserve a piece of heritage unique and authentic to South Boston. We got to preserve the building plus get market rate apartments in downtown. This project is a shining example of how our small community is restructuring its downtown economy for the 21st century".
New Brick Historic Lofts' heavy timbers, vaulted ceilings, abundant skylights and hardwood floors are brilliantly contrasted with modern design to provide high-end living spaces for its residents. Located at 701 Jefferson Avenue, in the heart of downtown South Boston, the historic tobacco warehouse features 27 apartments for lease, including both one and two bedroom loft units.
