Hillsborough, NC -Wednesday November 4th, 2015, Summit Design and Engineering Service’s Architecture Department made history, becoming the first firm to have a multi-family residential development approved by the Town of Hillsborough Historical Committee! In over 100 years, since the committee’s inception, this type of development has never been approved within the district. The condominium development, now being called 515 N. Churton, has been in the early planning stages for about two years. Architect Brian Shepard and Civil Engineer David Cates spent that time reaching out to the community to gain insight on what they would like to see happen with the development. It was extremely important to Brian and Summit, that the ideas, concerns, and feedback be implemented throughout the process of this project, and most importantly the historical district be respected. Although the character of the building is of a contemporary nature, the materials will mimic much of what is in the district such as corrugated metal, masonry, natural siding and glass. The building will have 24 units, and situate just below the existing Sinclair building. Summit will be providing Architecture, Land Development, and Geotechnical Engineering Services.
