WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (June 25, 2014) – Rehab Development, a Winston-Salem, N.C. based developer specializing in downtown Main Street revitalization, historic preservation and successful public/private partnership formation, in partnership with Destination Downtown South Boston, a 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer-based Virginia Main Street Organization dedicated to the economic and cultural revitalization of 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.

“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 twenty seven apartments for lease, including both one and two bedroom loft units.

“We are extremely grateful to both Virginia Main Street & Virginia Downtown Development Association for the wonderful recognition of our New Brick Historic Lofts project,” said Patrick Reilly, Principal at Rehab Development. “We would also like to thank Destination Downtown South Boston and the town of South Boston for their vision and support. Their hard work and commitment helped save this beautiful historic landmark, which has once again become a tremendous asset to downtown South Boston and the greater Halifax County community.”

Recently restored by Winston-Salem, N.C. based Rehab Builders, Inc., the lofts boast large windows, designs that take advantage of the 17 plus foot ceilings, exposed heavy timber truss system, beautiful hardwood floors, historic brick, granite countertops, ceramic tile backsplashes, energy efficient stainless steel appliances, energy efficient heating/air units, washer/dryer hookups, extra locked storage space, gym, community laundry room and more!
