In another astonishing transformation, GaHomeForeclosures is now marketing a foreclosed department store that has been revitalized it into luxury condominiums in downtown Augusta, Georgia. The JB Whites Building offers studio condominiums and one, two, and three-bedroom homes in this 51-residential condominium project at prices starting in the low $200,000s. The community also enjoys its own on-site café, several multi-use spaces, and a location that can’t be beat in the center of Augusta.
The JB White Department Store building was opened in 1874 and was one of the first department stores in the country. This site on 936 Broad Street was the flagship store and expanded to Columbia, South Carolina and other markets. In time, the large department store was abandoned in favor of malls, and eventually in 2007 the building was purchased with plans for three floors of condominiums with offices, retail, and restaurants below. A change of ownership gave us an opportunity to pick up where they left off in 2010, as we have the experience turning around communities that were left undone following the recession.
The project is now complete, with all 51 condominiums available today, and upgraded with deeded, secure parking, insulated windows and sound-dampening features. Each unit features historic characteristics like exposed brick, wood floors and tall ceilings, married to modern amenities like granite countertops, flowing floor plans and more. Luxury appointments, modern technology and a “green” lifestyle combine for a new era of southern comfort with the city of Augusta at your doorstep.
