The Bernhardt Luxury Lofts ~ Now Leasing!




Welcome to  

The Bernhardt Luxury Lofts,

the fabulous and most exciting restoration in Downtown Salisbury, North Carolina.

The soon-to-be completely renovated circa 1882 Bernhardt Hardware Building is now home to six upscale loft apartments above street level restaurant and commercial spaces in the East Square of Historic Downtown Salisbury.

 
In mid-summer of 2013, Greg Rapp of Wallace Realty sold the expansive hardware building at 111-115 N Main Street in Downtown Salisbury NC to Calm Holdings, a new partnership formed by Chad Vriesema and Bryan Wymbs. Vriesema and Wymbs have invested over $1.2 million in restoring and revitalizing the circa 1882 former iconic hardware store to make it a mix of high-end loft apartments on the second story and retail on the ground floor.  

Because of the preservation culture the restoration project embraces, The Bernhardt Luxury Lofts project is the recipient of both a City of Salisbury  Downtown Revitalization Incentive Grant, totaling $148,155 toward renovation of the building, water and sewer infrastructure and fire-suppression utilities; and North Carolina Historic Preservation Tax Incentive Grant.

The hardware store property, which over the years combined three separate buildings into one, has been restored to three distinct buildings, incorporating the Bernhardt name in the redevelopment because of its important historic connection to the property and to downtown Salisbury, North Carolina. 



Two of the six Bernhardt Luxury Lofts have already been leased, and while construction will continue May - August 2015, two lofts are ready for immediate occupancy. An open house and reception held on March 21st attracted over 400 people by invite-only to view the finished residential spaces, and the restaurant and bakery below. One commercial space on the ground floor remains available for lease. Prospective business owners should contact Greg Rapp at 704.213.6846
