Rich with history in the Carolinas textile era, Chronicle Mill, named for the original residents on the site, was first used as a textile manufacturing site by the Stowe Family. Originally one of the first-ever installations of air conditioning by Carrier as a solution to the overwhelming heat and intolerable working conditions in textile mills at the dawn of the 20th century. Revitalizing this historic property and anchoring an important corridor in a richly gentrifying Belmont, North Carolina, includes rehabilitating the existing mill from a series of ad hoc manufacturing structures, to a sensitively repurposed mill converted to a series of unique residential flats, amenities and ground floor retail along Catawba Street. In addition, the entire frontage of the less-historical portion of the mill will be recast and setback from the sidewalk by way of a series of pedestrian bridges that overlook a sunken garden activating the basement level residential units and amenities and creating a completely unique and secure frontage experience to Chronicle. 240 residential units comprised of the repurposed mill and a new ground up apartment building behind the mill, create a courtyard space highlighting the intervention and the new construction.
