Blue Ridge Properties
Blue Ridge Properties came in on time and under budget. The construction duration was 7 months, with construction starting on May 16, 2016, and the substantial completion on December 2, 2016. The owner was able to move into the building on December 12, 2016.
This project had some unusual circumstances. Initially, there was public resistance to the demolition of the previous structure on the site. Also, this project is located in a high vehicular and pedestrian traffic intersection of a major downtown artery. However, the project has had positive impacts on the downtown landscape in the historic church circle area. It has improved the economic development of the downtown businesses by increasing consume traffic.
