Our 45-acre historic textile campus brings apartments, restaurants, events, history, and innovation together under one roof. Initially built by the Cone brothers in 1898, Revolution Mill was the first flannel mill in the South. It helped establish Greensboro’s manufacturing tradition and the Triad’s prominence as the center of North Carolina manufacturing.
In 2012, Self-Help set out with a vision of restoring and revitalizing Revolution Mill. Revolution Mill is now a destination campus that includes commercial space, meeting & conference facilities, loft apartments, outdoor performance spaces, public art galleries, restaurants and coffee shops, greenway trails and more!
Today, Revolution Mill is home to three restaurants, the residents of 150 apartments, and over 90 businesses.
In many ways Greensboro chose us, the property was the perfect place to continue Self-Help’s legacy of catalytic redevelopment. Self-Help’s record of redevelopment includes 1.3 million square feet of office, residential and retail space in 15 locations. Throughout these projects, we’ve created space for the entire communities to work, gather and live. Our work on historic buildings helps keep the heritage of downtown areas alive and supports urban renewal rather than urban removal.
