Blount-Harvey Building

Greenville, NC

Standing as a proud landmark in Greenville’s Historic Downtown District, the Blount-Harvey building was constructed in the early 1920s and is striking in both scale and architectural style. This two-story colonial revival inspired building was in a state of disrepair prior to renovations and had been abandoned for nearly a decade. Once completed, the building was restored to its original aesthetic and now houses an assortment of retail shops and a rooftop restaurant.

To preserve this historic structure, all building systems needed complete replacement (electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and fire protection), and other structures such as roof assembly, egress stairs, and an elevator needed upgrades and modifications. All exterior and interior elements were restored to their original conditions, new restrooms were added, and all exterior entries and sidewalks were modified to meet ADA guidelines.

All work was completed while maintaining all requirements set forth by the US Department of Interior and the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office and received all applicable tax credits.
