Being centrally located within a growing city, Epoch has teamed with local developers to restore and renew a historic building constructed in 1926 and opened as Hibberd Printing. Since that time the building has gone through several owners with little maintenance or commitment to its historical roots.
The project is considered a transition between the current downtown business district and the growing south side of town. Being Phase I of II, the building’s historical presence and pedestrian driven access will advance the vision of what could be and afford a rapidly growing city the opportunity to house and entertain a new generation of city dwellers.
The goal of the project is to balance development and return on investment with a great effort to revive the historic integrity of the building, inside and out. This has been accomplished in what has become a mixed use building with retail making up the first floor and residential on the second and third. Views are maximized throughout the building with a new orientation to the south, looking onto a pedestrian plaza where all retail spaces are accessed from as well as primary residential views.
