CHARLESTON, S.C. — Atlanta-based The Simpson Organization is developing The Cigar Factory, a mixed-use property located at 701 E. Bay St. in Charleston. Built in 1881 as an industrial plant, the property has been in constant use since then as a cotton mill, a cigar factory, offices and Johnson and Wales University. The company plans to redevelop the property in to a mixed-use project offering 76 residential condominiums, 37,000 square feet of retail space and 26,000 square feet of office condominiums. The residential units will feature solid hardwood floors; renovated windows; and open kitchen layouts with Siematic cabinets, granite countertops and oversized islands. Additionally, the property will feature concierge service, an elevated swimming pool, a fitness center, a pet park, a roof top observation deck with a view of the harbor, a club with individual wine storage, a wine tasting room and a private, walled Charleston garden. The retail and restaurant portion are designed to accommodate a white tablecloth restaurant, a gourmet-style grocery store, galleries and boutiques. The Cigar Factory sales and information center is currently open.
