The massive White Mill in Danville that sat vacant for decades is now starting to see some changes.

Renovations to turn the old textile factory into Dan River Falls began last winter.

They are now one-third of the way through as windows and a fresh coat of white paint are being added to the outside.

“It’ll make an incredible change,” said Dave Vos, Alexander Company Development Project Manager. “There’s been so much progress made in the River District and in Danville, but there was always this. Ironically, it was called the white mill, but it was dark. There were no lights on. The building sat vacant for decades.”

On the inside, framework is being done for the 150 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments.

The first floor will include a fitness center, community room, local and chain restaurants, businesses, and on-site property management.
