Hotel Delmonte

Mountain Partners in Community Development hired the firm to survey the Hotel Delmonte on Railroad Avenue in Elkins, WV in order to provide a concept design for the adaptive reuse of the structure. Built-in 1899, and modified in 1906, the Delmonte was central to the Elkins railroad industry. Our building assessment and redevelopment concept plan provided a master plan for the multi-use rehabilitation of the building that today is fully occupied after several years of phased upgrades and construction.

When Mountain Partners purchased the building in 1998, it had suffered from years of neglect, making it unsafe and at risk for major deterioration. The building assessment and redevelopment concept plan utilized the first floor of the building as a restaurant and the upper levels as office space.

Retaining Delmonte's historic integrity was a key motivator in this design. The sensitive use of space and architectural elements such as door hardware, wood windows, and moldings maintained a sense of place in history while adapting it to modern use.

The firm has additionally executed construction documents for the building's current owner, the Randolph County Housing Authority. The scope involved complete interior rehabilitation, exterior restoration, including masonry, wood windows, exterior doors, millwork, and universal access.
