Piedmont Flour Mill – Update

They are working.

And it’s not to tear it down. It’s to build it up. The partners of Lynchburg Mill LLC are continuing the reconstruction of the Piedmont Flour Mill – even in the coldest part of the year. You can see C.L. Lewis workers atop the scaffolding in temperatures around 20 degrees. The mill is at least 130 years old, but historical records are unclear about the exact year it was built. The group bought the mill and the two adjacent lots on Horseford Street in efforts to create 52 apartments and a 3,000-square-foot commercial space. In addition, the group wants to turn the silos behind the mill into apartments too–an idea that has been bounced around for decades but has not actually come to fruition. With the potential of the James River Place condos starting this year, along with 50 Washington Street and the Bluffwalk – the riverfront may finally come to life after years of dormancy. We’ll keep ya posted…
