Our History

Capital Venture Corporation was formed in 1991 when founders Phil Nelson and Jim Weiler joined forces for a real estate project. The company grew with the addition of residential apartment buildings and complexes. After successfully taking on the construction of a wooded, luxury apartment complex named Park Pointe Way, the duo moved their sites to the revitalization of downtown Huntington. They purchased a number of buildings and renovated them into prime commercial space designed to expand and attract new businesses to the city. Projects have included remodeling the former Dickinson Furniture building, now the home of Capital Centre and remodeling the former Love Hardware building which now houses the Campbell-Woods Law Firm.

Our most recent centerpiece project is The Market, a one-floor building that houses a variety of restaurants and shops. Also completed and neighboring The Market are Capital Centre East and the Steptoe & Johnson building. This expansive project was the icing on the cake to the large renovation and redevelopment project of four large buildings in the 800 block of 3rd Avenue.


Our Vision

Our commitment is to further energize and develop the city of Huntington. We will continue to work in the community to save and create jobs, support local business, and pave the way for other investors and developers to do the same. Our vision is to reflect our deep love of Huntington and the surrounding areas through entrepreneurship and renovation and to grow that pride and commitment in others.
