The Lamar Lofts

Macon, GA

Lord Aeck Sargent provided complete architectural, civil and landscape services for the rehabilitation of 552-580 Cherry Street in the historic district of downtown Macon.

The project has 40 market-rate apartments in 40,000 sf and offers 5,000 sf of commercial/retail space in two storefronts of a mercantile building originally constructed in the 1880s. The project pursued state and federal historic preservation tax credits.

LAS worked closely with the project’s developer and the Urban Development Authority, Newtown Macon, to utilize open space at the rear of the parcel for community trash collection and public open space, providing  a critical need for the rapidly redeveloping historic business district.
