CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA – Construction has completed on The Refinery, a new 3-story mixed-use building located on Meeting Street in Charleston’s Upper Peninsula. Local architecture and interior design studio, The Middleton Group worked with architectural design group, Sottile & Sottile, and owner group and contractor, Flyway Construction & Development on the design of the modern building offering restaurant and bar space on the first floor, as well as rentable office space and exterior community spaces, including an amphitheater with a stage for outdoor concerts and entertainment.

“The Refinery brings new life to the tract of Meeting Street that has historically been lined with industrial warehouses and factories,” said Laura Middleton, Principal of The Middleton Group. “By introducing a space for a new restaurant opportunity and creating outdoor space centered around entertainment, this development will provide the community with a new place to gather.”

The design for The Refinery was inspired by its industrial surroundings. Brick walls, metal siding and large windows are reminiscent of the local warehouse buildings of the early 20th century. The floor to ceiling windows invite natural light into the 42,300 square feet of interior space. Rentable office spaces range from 500 to 10,000 square feet, and include access to an expansive terrace-level porch.

“We are thrilled to have this dynamic mixed-use project completed, and we look forward to welcoming guests to the amphitheater in the near future,” said Lindsay Nevin, President of Flyway Construction & Development.

The large 1,500-seat amphitheater, stage and open green space onsite will host a variety of community and private events. With easy access to an onsite restaurant and bar, the new development will encourage creative and social collaboration through music, art and food.

Tenants of the new space have begun moving in. Additional commercial space is available for lease through Flyway Construction & Development.
