Granby Mill Apartments

Granby Mill Apartments

Columbia, SC


Two long-vacant historic textile mills located in Columbia, South Carolina have been renovated into a revitalized apartment complex in two phases. Phase One included the renovation of Granby Mill, a 270,000 square foot structure constructed in 1895. The renovation resulted in more than 140 apartments with a mixture of one, two, and four-bedroom layouts. Each apartment is designed with a second floor sleeping loft, and the living areas and bedrooms are bathed in daylight from the original window openings, bricked up during the 1950s, now to be refitted with new, historically accurate windows. Common spaces are located within a center spine on each floor. Site development includes parking and a swimming pool/tennis court complex.
