The Stone Center (Former Stone & Thomas)
Wheeling, West Virginia
A project used to change up an old stomping ground in Wheeling got the build treatment from Cattrell Companies. The Old Stone and Thomas store was once a staple of the city. Unfortunately it closed. Instead of leaving it sit bare and unused, Cattrell came in to give it a fresh new look. Stone Center
The project is apart of a drive to revitalize the Downtown Wheeling area. Because of this, the city brought apartment living to working adults. Therefore people looking to live in the middle of the city have excitement for sure.
Big changes occurred to the Stone Center by Cattrell’s team. The floors that once were apart of the former Stone and Thomas department store are now unrecognizable. Due to steel, wood and insulation. However in October, the apartments have the approval to be move in ready. Cattrell made the important changes to all the parts of the building. With the floor as well as the walls being redone.
The city stated that the most difficult part was the amount of demolition done to the property. All of this without loosing the stableness of the building. Cattrell was able to relieve any stress of this issue with the help of it’s experienced team. The company was able to work with the Downtown project leaders. Together with Cattrell the leaders got exactly what they wanted for the new building.
The apartment now offer great views of Downtown. Due to the massive windows. Also the residents can see and the Ohio River from the other side. With this in mind, residents get a new look of the city. The one and two bedroom apartments are available for rent to see a great part of the Friendly City. However , the restoration of a 115-year-old building doesn’t come without a few bumps in the road. Cattrell had no fear due to it’s history in the business.
Where it permits, the original feel of the department store remains in tact. Cattrell was able to keep many of the features that once dazzled shoppers at the department store. The workers kept the ceilings high, where the units were high ceilings. They also kept as much of the original flooring as could be possible. The leaders of the project had a concern to keep the feel of the original building. With this in mind, Cattrell delivered.
Keeping the Feel
Old brick and the original duct work still shine true in the building. In addition kitchens feature granite counter tops. Also top floor units feature sky roofs. Cattrell’s job was to keep what was great about the building. Through each division, the company focused on these concerns.
The Regional Economic Development Partnership and the city of Wheeling began the plans. Then called Cattrell to get to work.
Each unit was handle with the divisions inside Cattrell. In the event that the units had issues as well as the leaders, Cattrell was there. As a result the units are so adaptable. Because of this the city of Wheeling were very pleased in the work done.
The 22 apartments are on track for an October 1 move-in date due to Cattrell’s fine jobs. As a matter of fact. The Wheeling Nailers have the housing on the first floor. Cattrell also created 12 loft style-apartments. These are to be the first one to be able for rent.
