Since our inception, Charles Hawkins Co. has been a trusted source for development and build-to-suit services.
With an extensive track record of successful speculative and build-to-suit projects, and a deep knowledge of the Middle Tennessee real estate market, our experienced professionals are well-positioned to help our clients and investors identify, construct and deliver first-class buildings.
Case Study: The Boot Factory
In 2013, Charles Hawkins Co. launched the speculative redevelopment of The Boot Factory, which was a creative office space formerly used as a warehouse and manufacturing space. The property was acquired in 1986 from The General Shoe Company, now Genesco.
This $10,000,000 speculative project required substantial structural modifications, new infrastructure and utility improvements, a new roof, an outdoor courtyard with exposed structural elements, and energy efficient windows and skylights.
Seven tenants now call The Boot Factory home, and it has proven to be a financial success for all of our partners and clients. What’s more, it has added substantial momentum to the revitalization of the Wedgewood Houston and Berry Hill neighborhoods. Once we began our redevelopment, three separate neighbors initiated revitalization projects for similarly underused assets. The Boot Factory both embodies and inspires the growth of our city.
