GREENSBORO - A legendary building in Greensboro is getting a major facelift. The building has been closed for 31 years.
Durham based non-profit Self-Help has a particular interest in preserving historic buildings, and after buying the Revolution Mill buildings last September, their focus became renovation.
Restoration efforts have been made since the mill shut down in 1982. Previous owners started a renovation but couldn't finish after the economy turned against them. Four years later, Self-Help took over, and now the renovation process restarted.
Phase I will be complete in six to seven months. It includes the installation of new windows and roofs. Phase II will renovate the 150,000 square foot space that used to be the Nussbaum Business Center. Both phases will cost between 15 and 17 million dollars.
Self-Help hopes the property brings together a diverse mix of small and professional businesses to work together as a community.
