Upcoming Project

Chief Tassel

Martinsville

Size

17,000 SF

Budget

$1.8 MM

Description

Five years after opening the Henry, we’re back in Martinsville – this time, right across the street at the old Chief Tassel building. This c. 1929 building has seen better days, but underneath the peeling paint and deteriorating floors, it offers glimpses of historic charm. We look forward to transforming this vacant property into commercial office space and corporate apartment rentals. Breaking ground in 2021!

Upcoming Project

Woodstock Farm

Middlesex, VA

Size

105 Acres

Description

The family home of the last of the Lincoln descendants, this property is an overlooked historical gem. Located in Middlesex County on the Piankatank River, Woodstock Farm contains several historic barn and outpost structures alongside the sprawling family home.

We envision a community of homes that fit with the rustic and bucolic nature of the property, with shared amenities like a dock, walking trails, and pool.

Upcoming Project

Petersburg Harbor

Petersburg, VA

Size

10 Acres

Budget

$500,000

Description

Literally a dumping ground for industrial waste and material, we see big opportunities in this undeveloped stretch of land at the edge of Old Towne Petersburg. Without any sizeable outdoor venue for festivals or community events, Petersburg has historically been overlooked by musical acts and festival organizers. Waukeshaw will work with local stakeholders to reposition the Harbor as an attractive venue for Petersburg and Southside Virginia.

Planter’s Warehouse

Clarksville, VA

Size

14,000 SF

Budget

$2.6 M

Description

Once home to the oldest continuously existing tobacco market in Virginia, the Planters Warehouse had become a ramshackle building in the Clarksville Historic District. Originally built in 1840, the building had a captivating character that begged for re-use.

We purchased the warehouse from its original owners in 2016 with the intent of renovating it to accommodate 30 market-rate apartments and a restaurant. However, Mother Nature had other plans for the property when Hurricane Michael swept through Virginia in the fall of 2018 and flattened the structure. While we miss the Planters Warehouse and what it could have been, we are excited for the opportunity to create a new building from scratch and pay homage to the original warehouse.

 

Upcoming Project

Masonic Temple

Richmond, VA

Size

10,000 SF

Budget

$500,000

Description

After spending years building our Trapezium brand in Petersburg, we’re moving north to begin our new Richmond outpost. The former Masonic Lodge located in the historic Church Hill neighborhood will be transformed into a blendery, where we age and blend our beers in a variety of barrels.

Built in 1927, this beautiful building is a fixture in the Church Hill neighborhood. As such, we’re treating it with a “light touch”, doing minimal work to repair systems and clean up the place for its new use, without disturbing its mysterious vibe or historic nature. We look forward to opening our doors in early 2022.

Beale’s East

Yorktown, VA

Size

4,000 SF

Budget

$1M

Description

Beale’s Beer will soon be taking a journey across the Commonwealth to Yorktown. The original Bedford location will remain, and Beale’s East will offer our treasured beers to the Williamsburg and Hampton Roads area.

The design style of Beale’s Yorktown will draw from the working waterfront architecture to create a maritime modern aesthetic and feel that speaks to the culture and history of the region. The brewpub will feature a no-frills, seafood-oriented menu. We expect to open this new treasure in Spring 2022.

 

Upcoming Project

Winton Farm

Amherst, VA

Size

285 Acres

Budget

$7M

Description

When you think of a Virginia country club, you might think of something like Winton, a sprawling 285 acre haven nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. But Winton is not your average country club.  The history of this 18th-century manor house and the 283 acres of grounds that come with it have a storied past dating back to 1743 when the land was deeded to its original owner by the King of England, George II.

Amherst County solicited proposals for Winton, and Waukeshaw purchased this property in December 2018 with the intent of continuing the culture of relaxation and enjoyment for all. With a large pool, golf course, historic barn, tennis courts and more, the opportunities are endless.

We are continuing to welcome members and guests for golf and summers at the pool. Our Poolhouse AirBnB is open year round, and the Manor House renovations will be complete in 2021 with more lodging options! Stay tuned for updates as our work at Winton Farm continues.

Upcoming Project

Bedford Campus

Bedford, VA

Size

43,000 SF

Budget

$11M

Description

Meet Old Yellow, Bedford’s original public school, built in 1912. This uniquely beautiful building has sat vacant for over 30 years, until now. With assistance from the Bedford Economic Development Authority, Old Yellow will soon become Bedford’s first boutique hotel with 30 guest rooms. Visitors will be able to experience downtown Bedford like never before, with a tailored experience offering the distinctive character that is Bedford itself.

Just next door to Old Yellow lies the former Bedford Middle School, built in the 1930s. On January 23, 2020, an arsonist set fire to the building, causing severe damage to the structure. We are forever grateful to the first responders who bravely fought the fire for hours and kept the community safe. We remain committed to this building, which was a community landmark, and which we intended to convert into 40+ market rate apartments.  We’ll continue to share more information as the situation develops.

The gymnasium behind the middle school will continue to be used as a gym, with some new programming options for future tenants, visitors and residents.

Big Trouble Malting and Spirits

Petersburg, VA

Size

14,000 SF

Budget

$810,000

Description

Big Trouble, a malting facility and craft distillery, will be housed just across the courtyard from Trapezium Brewing in Old Towne Petersburg, offering its own brandy and tasting room.

The project will be financed in part with a $50,000 grant from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund (AFID) and matching incentives from the City of Petersburg. At the official announcement, Governor McAuliffe said, “Big Trouble brings together multiple aspects of economic development – agriculture, entrepreneurship, manufacturing, tourism, and community revitalization – in one operation and is another excellent example of leveraging some of the Commonwealth’s greatest assets to build a new Virginia economy.”
