Knox Abbott Drive Mercantile Development

A traditionally inspired new ground up commercial building with four tenant spaces.

Overview: The Phase One Design architecture team is delighted to present a state-of-the-art commercial retail strip development project located in the heart of Cayce, SC. This project aims to revitalize the local urban fabric by replacing an existing abandoned and deteriorated standalone restaurant building with a modern, economical, and aesthetically pleasing retail space.

Project Features:

  • Design & Styling:  The 5600 square foot building embodies a harmonious blend of traditional styling and contemporary design elements.  The façade showcases a timeless appeal with a combination of brick, precast concrete, and dark bronze standing seam metal awnings.  This thoughtful design approach ensures the building seamlessly integrates with the surrounding urban context while offering a fresh and inviting atmosphere for potential tenants and customers.
  • Construction Materials: To ensure durability, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability, the building is constructed primarily using steel and concrete block materials.  These materials not only provide structural integrity but also offer long-term value, minimizing maintenance costs over the building’s lifespan.
  • Zoning Compliance:  The project adheres to the elevated standard set by the local zoning regulations, specifically the Knox Abbott Design Overlay District.  This commitment to compliance ensures that the development enhances the architectural character of the area while respecting the unique heritage and identity of Cayce.

Retail Units:  The development comprises four distinct retail or mercantile units, offering flexible spaces that cater to a variety of business needs.  Whether it’s boutique shops, cafes, or professional offices, fostering a vibrant mix of businesses that contribute to the local economy and community engagement.
