Powerhouse Square

Powerhouse Square is an adaptive reuse project anchored by two national Historic Register structures built by Carolina Power & Light over 70 years ago. The project includes restaurants, shops, offices and a structured parking deck. The original Powerhouse Building houses Southend Brewery and Smokehouse, a restaurant and micro-brewery. The historic Garage Building accommodates the offices of Cline Design on the upper level and Napper Tandy’s Irish Pub, on the lower level. A later vintage Service Building serves as office and retail space. Structured parking supports the increased traffic generated by the development. This development received an Anthemion Award for Outstanding Historic Renovation from Capital Area Preservation in 2000 and a Sir Walter Raleigh Award for Community Appearance in 1999..
