“They understand South End and just how good the site can be,” Darnall says.

Atherton Mill sits on a nearly 10-acre site — much of which fronts South Boulevard. The project centers around the property’s historic mill building, built in 1893.

Darnall sees that space as the “core” for South End.

“It’s such a perfect fit. It’s really been a long time coming.”

Construction should begin within the next 2.5 weeks, he adds.

The mixed-use project will include roughly 350,000 square feet of residential space. That breaks down into 346 higher-end apartments, which boast views of uptown Charlotte and the rail trail.

When complete, Atherton Mill also will have 115,000 square feet of retail — that includes a mix of new and existing tenants. Roughly 45,000 square feet is occupied at this time.

Edens continues to negotiate leases for that site, with an eye on premier brands — particularly when it comes to fashion.

“The interest has been great,” he says.
Expect a 15,000-square-foot anchor tenant. There also will be four new restaurant offerings.

That includes an already-confirmed Italian concept by Steve Palmer, founder of The Indigo Road Hospitality Group. He operates O-Ku at Atherton Mill and Oak Steakhouse in SouthPark.

Darnall says the remaining space will bring in a mix of local, regional and national retailers.

“There’s a screaming need for more fashion,” Darnall says.

Atherton Mill has been strategically adding key tenants such as Anthropolgie and Free People — a retailer under the Urban Outfitters parent brand — as well as eyeglass retailer Warby Parker.

The project aims to improve the caliber of retail to meet community needs.

Edens is targeting spring 2019 for those retail operations to open.

So this is what the other side looks like. 1920's, here we come.

New building is sensitive to the early 20th century design of the landmark Parks-Cramer building. The design follows a historical archetype of multi-level masonry industrial buildings of the 1920’s. MV+A worked to create the look and feel of a historic industrial building that could have been converted into a present-day use.
