It’s been a little over six months since construction started on the White Mill restoration project, and the city is getting closer to transforming it into the crown jewel along the Dan River.

The 550,000-square-foot building has come a long way. So far crews are 50% done with installing new windows and a fresh coat of paint is being added to the outside. The framing for the apartments is 75% complete.

David Vos, Development Project Manager for The Alexander Company, says the apartments will be a hot commodity.

“The Views are just incredible, these massive 24-foot wide openings, and when you’re standing up in the loft, you’re looking directly right down to the river, so its going to be exciting, people will be jumping for the opportunity to lease those units because they’re just beautiful,” Vos said.

There is a waitlist for people who are interest in living in the apartments, but applications will not be accepted until the project is closer to being completed.

A percentage of units are set aside as workforce housing, so people who earn 80% of the median income and families who are at 80% of the median income qualify for those units.
