More luxury units coming to fashionable Triad apartment community

One of the Triad's most fashionable apartment communities is expanding with more luxury units at a premium price.

Eight new apartments are under construction at Revolution Mill in the space remaining on the west end of the residential building near The Colonnade, an 8,500-square-foot event space with an outdoor courtyard.

Maggie Cummings, the property manager, told Triad Business Journal that the apartments are scheduled for completion in the fall. C.T. WilsonConstruction Co. of Durham is the general contractor for the project, estimated at $1.8 million in a building permit filed with the City of Greensboro.

C.T. Wilson worked in a joint venture with Weaver Cooke of Greensboro on earlier renovations at Revolution Mill. Developer Self Help Ventures Fund is part of Durham-based non-profit Self Help. Revolution Mill opened its first 140 residential units early in 2017.

FIRST LOOK: Inside the new Revolution Mill Apartments

Character and convenience are two strong selling points for the new Revolution Mill Apartments in Greensboro.

No two units are exactly alike. In fact, Revolution Mill leasing representative Meredith Frye said 26 different floor plans are among the 140 units. And even if a unit is among the eight “most-common” floor plans, it has its own unique characteristics, whether it’s the outline of a bricked-over service elevator on the wall or pipes and duct work below the 15-20-foot high ceilings.

Since opening at the beginning of February, the former textile mill, about two miles north of downtown Greensboro, has welcomed 30 residents on its two levels. Another 30 are signed and will move in soon. A similar number are available to residents eligible for reduced rent.

The 50-acre Revolution Mill property, once home of the South's largest flannel mill, is hoped to become an attraction and a showcase for redevelopment. The former mill was purchased for redevelopment by Self-Help Ventures Fund in 2012.

Under the same roof as several offices, the apartment section has its own secure entrances. At least three restaurants have committed to the mill, including Natty Greene’s Kitchen + Market, a spin-off of the brew pub and brewery, and Cugino Forno Pizzeria, offering Neapolitan-style pizza, scheduled to open before the end of March.

Apartment attractions include the high ceilings and new windows modeled after the originals that measure either 10 or 15 feet in height and offer tremendous light. Each unit has restored brick walls with wood beams and steel light fixtures hanging from the ceiling as well as modern kitchens.

Rent is $915 to $945 for one-bedroom units, and $1,150 for two-bedroom units. All units have one bathroom.

The spacious hallways are climate controlled with original brick and beams. A courtyard planned as a gathering spot and a venue for shows is under construction.
