Revamped Historic Lofts For Sale In Galveston

As you’re planning that beach getaway this summer, you may want to consider buying your own retreat in Galveston. Not only will you get a place to hang your sun hat, you’ll also get a piece of history.

Atlanta-based SF Capital is converting a historic building in Galveston into a condo project called The Strand Historic Lofts. The project will have 37 units for sale. Located at 2400 Mechanic Street in Galveston, a block from the harbor, the building was built in 1890 as a printing press.

One- and two-bedroom units range in size from 900 to 1,900 square feet and are priced beginning around $200,000. The complex includes controlled access entry, gated-garage parking, a fitness center and a rooftop deck.

“Each home is unique and has a story behind it,” SF Capital principal Will Stolz said in a statement. “We are carefully renovating and transforming this historic building into high-style lofts. Each home offers high-end fixtures and unmatched, impressive finishes that integrate exposed original brick walls, authentic tongue and groove pine wood floors, soaring 12- to 14-foot exposed beam wood ceilings and original, beautiful 10-foot windows and storm shutters.”

Many of the units feature historic details, such as ceilings with wood timbers and iron arches, iron turnbuckles and tin-clad rolling fire doors as well as antique elevator cables and carriages.

The historic building was the home office for Clarke & Courts Printing, one of the most successful printers in Texas during the early 20th century. In 1994, the building was converted into lofts.

Thanks to a booming economy and a fresh marketing effort, Galveston saw a record spike in tourism last year.

In 2013, tourists spent $687.2 million in Galveston. That’s up 5 percent from $654.5 million a year ago, according to a report conducted by Pennsylvania-based Tourism Economics.
