2018 Best Adaptive Reuse Project
Fuquay- Varina , NC
128 South Fuquay Avenue served as the Town of Fuquay-Varina fire department for more than thirty years, followed by a variety of businesses until 2017.
Anthony Adams purchased the building and partnered with Ben and Alex Somerville with the dream of opening a coffee shop.
Cultivate Coffee is Fuquay-Varina’s first all-inclusive coffee shop with roasting capabilities, and it offers a coffee subscription service. The business partnered with Bestow Baked Goods and Adam’s Ice Cream to offer cupcakes, scones, and ice cream to customers.
The $300,000 investment has leveraged a total of eleven full-time and part-time jobs.
