Charleston, S.C. — Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a regional full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, is underway on demolition and construction at the site of The Shelmore, a Class-A mixed-use property located at 774 South Shelmore Blvd. in Mount Pleasant, S.C. The adaptive reuse project involves the redevelopment of a former BI-LO grocery store into nearly 50,000 square feet of office space.
The new space will feature a spacious lobby with a two-story “jewel box” entry, 18-foot ceilings, and the potential for a variety of floor plans suitable for both small and large office users. The existing retail surrounding the building will also receive exterior upgrades to match the new façade.
Chad Frampton, president and CEO of Frampton Construction, said, “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to take an underutilized space like this and completely transform it for a new, creative use. With perks like walkable dining and its proximity to downtown, The Shelmore will be a strong addition to the Mount Pleasant office and retail market.”
Complete demolition of the interior is underway to make room for office space, and over 30 windows and 10 sky lights will be added to the building’s exterior to provide abundant natural lighting. Further improvements to the exterior include a new TPO roof, the addition of two new building entrances, and installation of curtainwall plus storefront around the entire building. Extensive landscaping and an outdoor dining patio are also in the scope of work.
Collett Capital partnered with Lions Gate Capital, LLC, and WECCO Development to develop the project. Construction started in February of 2020 and is expected to be complete by the Fall. LS3P Associates is the project architect.
