Olympia Mill Apartments
Two long-vacant historic textile mills located in Columbia, South Carolina are being renovated into a revitalized apartment complex. Phase Two of the complex includes the renovation of Olympia Mill, a 300,000 sf structure construction in 1895. The renovation will result in more than 160 apartments with a mixture of one, two, and four bedroom layouts. Each apartment is also designed with a second floor sleeping loft, and the living areas and bedrooms are bathed in daylight from the original window openings now to be refitted with new, historically accurate windows. Common spaces will be located within a center spine on each floor.
