701 Whaley

Historic Renovation

Project Summary

Located in the historic Olympia Mill Village in Columbia, 701 Whaley is a multi-use and event facility. An adaptive re-use of an existing historical circa 903 structure, this 32,000 SF CM-R project consisted of extensive construction & engineering partnerships to fully analyze previous structural failures ó identifying reproductive and restorative components including new structural reinforcement, exterior brick veneer, fabrication of reproduction windows, interior woodwork, roofing, storefront, residential build out, etc.

Now home to the 701 Center for Contemporary Art, along with several loft apartment residents, commercial offices and retail establishments, this collaborative effort between private developers and Historic and Conservation agencies brings new energy to the Olympia Mill Village in Columbia.
