THE BARWIL BUILDING
At nearly 130 years old and once a candy & elixirs warehouse, the historic Barwil Building has been meticulously renovated favoring industrial salvage and old-fashioned construction methods such as 14" thick masonry walls and beefy heart pine columns supporting exposed timber joists below wide plank floors. The result is thoroughly updated spaces featuring authentic period materials true to the original style of the building, and a look and feel that simply cannot be mistaken for new construction.
The Barwil property is a rare find and is really the kind of project we love to develop: a mixed-use building with lower level commercial units and hidden residential retreats tucked away from the street where residents enjoy the convenience of prime downtown addresses without many of the expected trade offs.
