Former Greensboro Hosiery Mill Becoming Apartments

March 9, 2018

Another mill property has also received historic landmark status and will be developed as apartments. At the same Feb. 20 meeting when the Greensboro City Council designated Proximity Print Works Mill as a historic site, the council also passed an ordinance designating the Mock Judson Voehringer Co. Hosiery Mill as a Guilford County landmark. The former textile mill sits on 6.42 acres at 2610 Oakland Ave. west of UNC-Greensboro. It will be developed into about 170 apartments, including several townhouse units, with a fitness center, community room and pool. The building’s original masonry structure will be kept. Original windows, covered decades ago by brick, will be uncovered and restored.
