213 S Broad St
18,000 sq. ft.
This property offers a versatile opportunity with 9,000 sq. ft. of retail space on the ground floor, potentially allowing for the addition of residential living spaces upstairs, similar to other mixed-use downtown buildings. The second floor boasts a comparable square footage and features a convenient passenger elevator. Moreover, this building qualifies for Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits and occupies a prime location in the heart of the bustling downtown commercial district.
Completed Redevelopment Projects
The following projects are great examples of what a building owner can do to adapt a historic building with a new and fresh use to service the current retail landscape. Each project created presented its own unique challenges, but the creative and forward-thinking building owners created true assets for Downtown Edenton.
417 S Broad St
Formerly a hair salon, this property has been reimagined by its new owners in collaboration with UNCG Interior Architecture Fellowship and Down East Preservation. They have crafted a brand-new residential unit on the upper floor, now listed as an Airbnb, offering visitors a delightful opportunity to immerse themselves in the hospitality and charm of Downtown Edenton.
Habit Brothers Building
In significant need of repair, DDE spearheaded the restoration of The Habit Brothers Building. We commissioned architectural drawings from Mauer Architecture and developed an investment plan that garnered support from four local investors who acquired the property. After stabilizing the building, they transformed the second floor into five modern apartments. Today, this building accommodates four thriving street-level businesses and an additional five apartments on the upper stories, increasing the property value and contributing to the area’s tax base.
315 S Broad St
Previously an appliance store, this building was purchased and renovated utilizing Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits. The second floor now features two Airbnb apartments and a hair salon. The refurbished downstairs is now home to Surf Wind and Fire Edenton, becoming a cornerstone of social interaction in Edenton and a catalyst for further development downtown.
The Herringbone on the Waterfront
This 19th-century ice house was once used to process locally caught fish. After sitting vacant for years, it was acquired by Main Street Champions Joe and Stephanie Wach. Working closely with Down East Preservation, they transformed the space into a thriving restaurant that employs 67 people and provides quality food and beverage in addition to weekly live music. The Wach’s also restored our retired Edenton Trolley to create an inviting outdoor area for residents and visitors to take advantage of the beautiful waterfront that defines Edenton.
Edenton Farmers Market
Once an aging Etna gas station, the Edenton Farmers Market has undergone a remarkable transformation. This impressive project, a collaborative effort between Destination Downtown Edenton and local corporate sponsors, was born from the shared goal of meeting the community’s demand for locally sourced food. Today, the Farmers Market stands proudly in the heart of downtown Edenton, offering residents and visitors a dedicated space to access an array of local goods and fresh produce every Wednesday and Saturday.
