WithersRavenel, architect MHAworks, and the Wren Family Estate are giving three historic buildings in downtown Siler City a new lease on life. The new development will be called Wren Corner Properties.
The buildings, which had fallen into disrepair, will be transformed into an 18-unit apartment complex, a brewery/taproom, and a space suitable for a restaurant.
WithersRavenel is providing streetscape improvements and a courtyard design to complement the adaptive reuse project and encourage foot traffic for the property and adjacent retailers.
The firm’s consultant services include conceptual design, surveying, subsurface utility designation, site planning, fire flow testing, site lighting, and permitting.
The development aims to create a destination in downtown Siler City like the one found in nearby Pittsboro. At the same time, Siler City hopes to capitalize on the visibility and popularity of the Chatham Park development, which will add 7,000+ acres of residential, commercial, mixed-use, and public space around Pittsboro.
Construction on Wren Corner Properties is underway and is expected to be completed in Fall 2022.
