The Genesis Project
25,000 SF Remodel / Repurpose of Historic Coca Cola Bottling Plant
This BGW project involved the restoration and repurpose of a blighted Coca-Cola Bottling Plant that had sat vacant for many years. The new look has a warm industrial feel with exposed original brick walls and large steel beams and ductwork visible in the ceilings throughout the facility. The new worship space includes a large performance stage and state-of-the-art audiovisual and lighting system. A dual staircase leads to the upper east side children’s wing and nursery. The west side of the facility features a lobby reception area and large multi-purpose youth worship space. The Genesis Project has utilized the new facility as an outreach tool in the local community, hosting hundreds of private and public events. As part of this project, the church also renovated an adjacent coffee house called Hub City Coffee, which has become a popular local destination, hosting local, family-friendly, live music events.
