The adaptive reuse project involved the conversion of a former BI-LO grocery store into nearly 50,000 square feet of creative office space. The building features 18-foot ceilings, a spacious lobby with a two-story “jewel box” entry, and the potential for a variety of floor plans ranging in size from 2,400 square feet up to 46,000 square feet.

Brendan Gilbert, project manager at Frampton Construction, said, “We’re proud to have been partners in transforming an underutilized space like this to create a completely different, innovative use. With benefits like walkable dining and its proximity to downtown Charleston and central Mount Pleasant, The Shelmore will be a valuable addition to the East of the Cooper office market.”

The redevelopment involved complete interior demolition, the cutting of more than 35 openings for new windows and skylights, installation of a new Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) roof, and the addition of six new building entrances. The existing retail surrounding the building received exterior upgrades to match the new façade. Extensive landscaping and hardscaping around the building were also added to complement the structure.

Construction started in February of 2020 and was completed in December. LS3P Associates was the project architect.
