Project Description

Listed on the National Register for Historic Places, the Hand Trading Company Building, Pelham, GA was the largest department store in South Georgia for many decades. The City of Pelham became an agricultural and commercial stronghold during the early twentieth century, due in a large part to the presence of the towering, retail emporium called the Hand Trading Company. The renovated magnificent Hand Trading building consists of one, two, and three-bedroom units totaling 46 residential units along with retail square footage on the first floor. Providing modern amenities in an elegant setting, the property is built to Earth Craft Building standards yet maintaining the historic features of the building including the 12-foot ceilings. Built to have an extensive amount of common area and community space, the property has a fitness area, computer lab, arts and crafts room, study room, and several other gathering and community spaces. Construction was completed in 2020.
