Larkin’s Catering and Events is adding to their growing event venue line-up with the historic Greenville Gas and Electric Light Building at 211 E. Broad St. The building’s current occupant, DP3 Architects Ltd., as previously announced in UBJ, is moving downtown to the Wells Fargo Center, 15. S. Main St.
DP3 Architects will be moving the last week of December and will be officially in and running on Jan. 2.
Michael Taylor, Managing Principal with DP3 states, ”DP3 Architects continues to grow and additional space is needed to service our growing client base. We are very excited and pleased to know that the historic building will be well taken care of and be available to the community for large functions and special events.”
Larkin’s Catering and Events will take over the space in January 2018 and is already booking for weddings and corporate events.
Kristina Murphy, vice-president of catering for Larkin’s Catering and Events says, “This is an opportunity of a lifetime to give this great old building a new purpose, and we are so excited to add it to our growing list of event spaces.”
DP3 Architects’ relocation to a completely redesigned and modern location on Main Street will be a notable change for the firm after being in their current 1890’s Greenville Gas and Electric Light Company building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, for 17 years.
“After a three-year search for the right space, we are thrilled with the location, flexibility, and opportunity for growth that the Wells Fargo Center provides,” Taylor says.
DP3 Architects is designing their new space, taking conventional office space and transforming it into a collaborative workplace.
“Our new office space is 30 percent larger than our current office and will offer fresh and trend-setting design, open layout that encourages a collaborative work model, and cutting-edge technology,” says Meg Terry, principal and VP of business development. “The space will support our continued growth and provide an inspiring work environment for current and future team members.”
