Orangeburg developers have converted a historic eight-unit apartment building on Devine Street in Columbia into luxury condominiums.

The building near the intersection of Devine and King streets is notable for its arts and craft architecture and the name “Timothy” above the doorways — believed to be the nickname of owner Jesse Reese when the building was erected in 1936, said developer Hubert Shuler IV, of The Shuler Group.

Other features include original hardwood floors and glass doorknobs. But worker installed modern central heating and air, electrical and plumbing.

“Most of the renovations were behind the walls,” Shuler said.

The company paid $955,000 for the building and invested an additional $600,000 on renovations.

The condos start at $190,000 for the four 700-square-foot, one-bedroom units, and $290,000 for the four 1,550-square-foot, two bedroom units.

The renovation is a bit of a departure for The Shuler Group, which usually does new construction.
