Cliffs Edge Lofts

Lynchburg, VA
Services: ArchitectureHistoric Preservation

Commonwealth Architects was commissioned for the rehabilitation of the former Lynchburg Shoe Company building, which was constructed in 1910. Now known as the Cliffs Edge Lofts, this structure is an extraordinary example of urban redevelopment and represents a new standard for affordable luxury living.

Many of the building’s original historic details were preserved during this rehabilitation, including exposed brick walls, wood flooring, and wood columns and beams, which add a historic charm and uniqueness to the building. For added natural light, our design team introduced a light monitor at the center of the building as well as some units.

Residents enjoy amenities such as a 24-hour gym, parking, and a 75’ elevator that transports residents between each floor and down to the resident community room located adjacent to the Blackwater Creek Trail.
