According to a news release, the owners of the Montgomery Building in downtown Spartanburg have closed the building in preparation for renovation work to begin.
BF Spartanburg LLC closed the building on Feb. 28 and expect to re-open it as a mixed-use development in 2018.
“Look for construction crews on site, not that the building has closed,” the release said. “You will see construction crews mobilized, the property will be fenced and the sidewalks will be closed.”
Because of the building’s listing on the National Register of Historic Places, developers are working with the National Park Service and have received conditional approval for renovations. BF Spartanburg LLC said it is “working diligently with the National Park Service and the S.C. Historic Preservation Office to finalize our approval.”
The new development will include approximately 72 apartments with over 8,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and 10,000 square feet of office space available, according to the Montgomery Building website.
Ground floor spaces for retail and restaurants are expected to range from 600 square feet to 3,700 square feet and the second floor will be over 9,000 square feet of office space.
