GALVESTON - A five-story property at 2400 Mechanic St. is being converted into 37 condominiums. The developer, Atlanta-based SF Capital, is spending more than $100,000 upgrading each unit.

One- and two-bedroom units range from 900 sf to nearly 1,900 sf. Prices start in the low $200,000s.

The building, called the Strand Historic Lofts, was developed in 1890 for Clarke & Courts Printing. It is part of the Strand Historic District, a National Historic Landmark District of primarily Victorian-era buildings.

The condominiums will feel like authentic lofts with exposed brick and wood beams, iron arches and tongue and groove pine wood floors. The units will incorporate modern amenities including USB-charging ports in the walls, high-end closet systems, upscale kitchen appliances and double-height cabinets with rolling-ladder access.

SF Capital bought the building last fall from Houston residential developer Randall Davis, who had renovated it in 1994 and turned it into rentals.
