From food halls to Class-A apartments, the American Spinning Mill is spinning a path for Greenville living. With Greenville, SC increasing in population expected to grow almost 24% over the next five years (source), the need for Class-A apartments is greater than ever.
Location, location, location – possibly the three most important words in mixed-use developments. Fortunately, in Greenville, there is no shortage of amazing local amenities and interesting things to do. Falls Park on the Reedy, the Greenville Zoo, and Fluor Field at the WestEnd are all within a 10 minute commute of the American Spinning Mill.
It is important to know that at one time, Greenville had 16 cotton mills and two dye/bleaching/processing mills with geographic locations that physically created a crescent shape. When the textile mills were active, they had their own stores, doctors, recreational facilities and other services. When the mills closed, services did, as well. However, one-quarter of Greenville County’s residents still reside along the Textile Crescent, many of them without access to needed, nearby services. This is something that Contour Companies hopes to rejuvenate for the expected 2,000 residents expected to relocate to Greenville, SC in the coming years. Ultimately, Contour plans to spin the former cotton mill into a thriving community that will be enhanced by the development of Poe Mill in the coming years (a new mixed-use development by Contour located next to the American Spinning Mill).
