CBRE|Triad is pleased to announce Old North State Trust will relocate from downtown Greensboro to Revolution Mill, the former Cone Mill textile plant is located along the Yanceyville Street corridor in Greensboro, just minutes from downtown. 

Due to the growth of the financial planning company, they have leased 5,000 square feet on two floors in the 1250 Building at Revolution Mill. The high-end office space will feature glass walled offices, and take advantage of the mill’s huge historic windows, hardwood decking, high ceilings and exposed oak beams. Old North State will be moving by the end of the year. 

“This is one of the premium spaces in the Mill, and we’re delighted with Old North State’s plans for it,” said Malcolm White, director of marketing and leasing for Self-Help, Revolution Mill’s developer. “Their clients will enter a spectacular reception space flooded with light, and Old North State’s staff will enjoy the dramatic setting for their individual offices. It’s a great fit.” 

The CBRE|Triad team of Richard Mossman, senior vice president, Matt King, assistant vice president and Christy Crouch Smith, associate, represented Self-Help in the transaction. Old North State Trust was represented by Richard Beard of Schulman and Beard Commercial Real Estate. The CBRE|Triad team has been handling the leasing and marketing responsibilities for Revolution Mill since October 2015.

About Revolution Mill 

The Revolution Mill District is a historic textile mill campus encompassing Revolution Mill and Olympic Mill sites, with adjacent land connected by North Buffalo Creek. Located just north of downtown Greensboro, Revolution began operations as the South’s first large flannel mill in 1899 and for decades anchored a thriving community of workers and craftspeople. The facility included over 640,000 feet of working space before the textile industry decline led to its closure in 1982. For the next few decades, limited sections of Revolution were renovated into office space, while other parts of the property fell into disuse and disrepair. In 2012 Self-Help assumed ownership of Revolution Mill and is completing the property’s transformation into a mixed-use development.
