Revitalizing an iconic and historic social hub to serve a modern-day community.

Built in 1910, the building at 255 Main Street is also known as the Furman Building and was home to the “Saturday Night Club”, where the members of the Hyannis Board of Trade went to discuss business. At first used purely for social gathering by the members, it eventually became the ‘Barnstable Board of Trade’, organized in June of 1913.

After decades of commercial use, our client realized the potential for a mixed-use development on a thriving Main Street. The rehabilitation of the building included a new storefront similar to the original, a new addition at the back of the building, a complete gut renovation of the interior, and 10 new one-bedroom apartments on the upper floors. The small, well-appointed apartments offer much-needed workforce housing for young professionals and employees of the nearby Cape Cod Hospital.  Two new commercial spaces on the ground floor anchor the building along Main Street.
