CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Upper King Street showroom that used to house Morris Sokol Furniture has sold for $22.5 million, according to real estate records.

The building was purchased by a Delaware limited liability company called Vanderking 510, LLC.

The Sokol family's furniture business was a fixture in Charleston for 94 years before its owner, Joe Sokol, announced his retirement last summer.

Sokol's father founded the Furniture company in 1921. Joe Sokol worked at the King Street store since graduating from the Citadel in the early 1950s.

Reflecting on his then-upcoming retirement last July, Sokol said Upper King Street had grown with new bars and restaurants that brought new foot traffic tot he area, something he said the city needed for a long time.

The documents do not reveal what the 47,000 square-foot space will become.
