The Powerhouse at University Center

PRESERVATION HONOR AWARD

Built in 1929, the Powerhouse provided electricity for the large Rock Hill Printing and Finishing Company. Today it is has been adaptively converted into a mixed residential and commercial site with a community food hall, craft brewery and live performance venue after a 2 1/2 year rehabilitation. The jury recognized the unique character of the Powerhouse and the creative architectural and engineering solutions to some of the rehabilitation challenges. The result is a breathtaking new community gathering place in Rock Hill.
