CBRE Triad has won the commercial leasing rights to represent Revolution Mill, a $100 million redevelopment of the former Cone Mill.
Revolution Mill, a massive complex of brick buildings and smokestacks off Yanceyville Street in Greensboro, was the first flannel mill in the South and secured Greensboro’s position as a major employer in the industry for decades until it closed in 1982.
Now, owner Self-Help Ventures Fund is working to breathe life back into Revolution Mill, which currently is being converted to provide more than 242,000 square feet of rentable Class A office space, as well as two restaurants and about 26,000 square feet of studio space for creative office users such as artists and entrepreneurs.
“We are pleased to have the CBRE team and its worldwide network of resources representing Revolution Mill,” said Malcolm White, director of marketing and leasing for Self-Help Ventures Fund. “We believe CBRE is well-positioned to attract prospective tenants from the Triad, the Southeast and beyond who are attracted to a beautifully-restored mill — with huge windows, oak columns, hardwood floors and vintage hardware — that is located only minutes from downtown Greensboro."
