It’s been about 17 years since the Poe Mill structure was destroyed in a fire, leaving uncertainty and an eyesore for the community in its place.
After the fire, the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority began environmental cleanup, working alongside the Department of Health and Environmental Control to ensure all harmful materials were removed. Once the first phase of cleanup was completed, GCRA had to figure out what to do with the place.
That’s when Contour Companies stepped in with a proposal. Specializing in multifamily housing and mixed-use developments, Contour aims to transform the 11-acre property into a massive development.
