Loray Mill Lofts
300 South Firestone Boulevard Gastonia, NC
The mill remains the centerpiece of Loray Mill Village, standing majestic at 6 stories tall. At the time of construction, Loray Mill was the largest mill under one roof in the world. The mill is renowned for both its architecture and many significant events that took place there. Its pioneering design which suppressed fire and the spread of fire through architectural features include rounded columns, separated stairwells and a state-of-the-art air conditioning system. These features were copied for years to come in other textile mills. In April 2013, reconstruction began on the renovation of Phase I of the mill building. The plan is to convert the 600,000 square foot Loray Mill into a mixed-use community of live, work, play. Phase I will consist of 190-apartment lofts for rent and 100,000 square feet of retail/commercial space. The Loray Mill will be ready for occupancy of residents and retail stores by Spring of 2014. Future plans for the renovation of Phase II should begin in late 2014. The area surrounding the mill is under a revitalization of its own to include the installation of a brand new city park. Loray Mill Village will come alive with a buzz of activity once again.
