Building reuse is also an act full of optimism: we can create the spaces our communities need and create new sites for producing value that build on, rather than detract from, the sense of place that makes our communities special. We have experience redeveloping two downtown commercial structures, including experience with complex financing and historic tax credits.
If you have a historic property, we can help you get started on creating the space you envision. We can provide project planning consultations, develop pro formas, or serve as a developer for your project.
108 South Main Street
Working Landscapes directors Carla and Gabe turned this vacant commercial building in heart of Warrenton’s Main Street into Warren County’s first mixed-use redevelopment project, including retail spaces, offices, and apartments. The building houses Working Landscapes’ office and our kitchen/cafe space, home to Drip Coffee + Market.
ByWay Foods Hub
We turned the former site of a cotton gin and flour mill into our food hub, featuring a fresh-cut vegetable processing facility. We commissioned local artist Napoleon Hill to paint a mural on the street side. We are now completing a major expansion of the hub.
