The concept of a high-end loft living space in downtown Charleston is unique. The perfect vehicle was the old McCrory’s Building, originally Edwards Department store, on upper King Street. The building, circa late 1930s, is clad in glazed terra-cotta and boasts a distinctive curve with a metal “swoosh” accentuating the corner. The upper level has large steel windows, approximately 64 SF each. The lower level contains several lofts and commercial space.
Inside, each of the fourteen units is approximately 1,300 SF and consists of: a living space, kitchen, loft bedroom, laundry closet and at least one bathroom. Several units have powder rooms and built-in computer work areas. The existing terra-cotta walls are exposed wherever possible and the steel roof structure also remains exposed. The kitchens glisten with pure white tiles, glass-front cabinets, granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances.
