Transforming a Parking Lot

What was once a derelict, non-descript parking lot, is now a beautiful community green, one that offers up a true “sense of place” for downtown Lake City, South Carolina.

Supporting Historic Resources

Lake City's Village Green is the focal point of several surrounding historic and non-historic building renovations. The 1930s National Bean Market and neighboring Jones & Carter Feed and Seed Store were renovated into vibrant venues used for a variety of arts and cultural events.

Addressing Energy Needs

Beneath the open grassed area is a 60-ton geothermal energy field that are linked together to sustainably serve the adjacent building’s energy needs.

A Note from John Abbott, AIA, Architect

"It's amazing to me how Lake City has embraced the Village Green as a springboard to renovating its existing building stock and revitalizing its already authentic Main Street into an arts, cultural and shopping destination."
