An ambitious facelift is planned for an old and derelict piece of property on the north side of the City of Greensboro. The fenced off Printworks Mill at the corner of Fairview St. and 9th St. has turned into an eyesore since it closed in 1977. But in June, the vision of its new possibility will be implemented and the building will come alive with construction activity.

The Madison, Wisconsin-based Alexander Company has big plans for the roughly 470,000 square-foot building. It is rehabilitating the Historic Printworks Mill in what it called ‘an adaptive reuse project.’

They plan to mimic the successful revitalization of nearby Revolution Mill by converting it into mixed-income residential apartments, interior parking, retail space, and climate-controlled self-storage facilities.
