Downtown Georgetown is known for its quaint town square and Victorian-era architecture, but a new development is changing the landscape.
Construction on a new five-story, mixed-used building called Lofts on Rock is nearing completion at 810 Rock St., which is adjacent to the Georgetown Public Library.
Lofts on Rock will lease commercial space on its ground floor and 12 residential units, ranging in cost from mid-$200,000s to nearly $400,000, will be sold on the other floors. The building will have a rooftop deck with views of Georgetown.
The development group behind the new project says it won't be surprised if more mixed-use developments pop-up in Georgetown.
"It has an unmistakable small-town feel that everyone instantly loves. It’s dynamic and growing, and it’s going to attract people who will want to live in the heart of it,” said Eric Visser, co-founder of Cerus Development, who predicts more mixed-use developments will be coming to Georgetown.
Cerus Development expects the building to completed by the end of this month.
