Adaptive use of a historic seven-building cotton mill into a self-storage facility featuring climate-controlled units and state-of-the-art electronic security. Redevelopment of the 180,000-square-foot facility, built in various stages beginning in the 1850s, required extensive review by local, state, and federal historic landmark agencies. Ideal demographics in the surrounding area and a dearth of land available for new construction led to the developer’s decision to redevelop the mill. Use of historic preservation tax credits enhanced project feasibility.
