This historic building in downtown Augusta has served many uses in the community leading up to its transformation into 19 loft-style apartments by S3DG and owner Mark Donahue. In 1860 it was built as a wagon factory and subsequently used as a shoe factory during the Civil War and a school before reopening as a wagon works in the 1920s and later office space. The building was closed for 30 years leading up to the revitalization. The adaptive reuse was sensitive to the history of the building, including restoring the stucco façade painted in the signature colors of the Lowrey wagons. The studio and one-bedroom apartments were designed to meet the growing needs of young professionals in the downtown area.
