Loray Mill Lofts

Loray Mill Loft Apartments & Shoppes in Historic Loray Village

Situated just southwest of downtown Gastonia, the neighboring area surrounding the Loray Mill is known as Loray Mill Village. It was established in 1902 after the completion of the Loray Mill. Life revolved around the mill.  Families in the neighborhood worked together and knew one another personally.  Their children would gather at the mill's swimming pool in the summer, and parents could walk to the bank, the post office, or the grocery store, all within a few blocks. Through various ownerships, the mill and surrounding mill village finally was purchased by Firestone, Inc. in 1935 and life continued.  Over the years, the mill houses were offered to the mill workers for purchase. The initial offering from Firestone was estimated at $500/room to the workers and Firestone provided some financing. Today, many of the mill houses remain occupied by former mill workers. But when the mill closed in 1993, everything changed. The grand old building began to fall apart, and took with it a sense of community.

Today, the Loray Mill Loft Apartment Homes and Shoppes are transforming the entire neighborhood.

The mill remains the centerpiece of Loray Mill Village, standing majestic at 6 stories tall. At the time of construction, Loray Mill was the largest mill under one roof in the world. The mill is renowned for both its architecture and many significant events that took place there. Its pioneering design which suppressed fire and the spread of fire through architectural features include rounded columns, separated stairwells and a state-of-the-art air conditioning system. These features were copied for years to come in other textile mills. 

In April 2013, reconstruction began on the renovation of Phase I of the 600,000 square foot Loray Mill to a mixed-use community of live, work, play. Phase I features 189 loft apartments for rent and 80,000 square feet of retail/commercial space. The area surrounding the mill is under a revitalization of its own to include the installation of a brand new city park. Loray Mill Village is coming alive with a buzz of activity once again.
