Groundbreaking at Trenton Mill Lofts Marks Continued Growth in Revitalizing North Carolina’s Downtown Areas

GASTONIA, NC — Kaufman Lynn Construction recently broke ground for the Trenton Mill Lofts, located in the heart of Gastonia’s Franklin Urban Sports and Entertainment (FUSE) District. Trenton Mill Lofts will serve the rising number of North Carolinians choosing to live in smaller cities like Gastonia, considered a vital corridor for commuters to the Charlotte metropolitan area.

Built in 1897, the historic Trenton Mill was Gastonia’s second textile factory and the oldest still standing. Scheduled for completion by the end of 2021, the new Trenton Mill Lofts will comprise 82,000-square-feet with 89 residential units and surface parking. LMG Group is the developer of Trenton Mill Lofts and RAM will be the property manager.

“Trenton Mill Lofts represents a growing trend in the revitalization of downtown areas across the state of North Carolina,” said Michael Kaufman, CEO of Kaufman Lynn Construction. “We are creating a future for grand historic buildings by repurposing them to meet the needs of 21st century residents.”

Founded in 1989, South Florida-based Kaufman Lynn Construction is a full-service construction manager and general contractor with offices in Raleigh, North Carolina. The builder recently completed a conversion of Fayetteville’s landmark Prince Charles Hotel to luxury residences and was responsible for constructing VIDA Kannapolis as part of a four-acre mixed use development, which incorporated and preserved the historic Cabarrus Bank Building. Kaufman Lynn also helped reimagine Wilmington’s waterfront with its Pier 33 multi-family residences.

Kaufman Lynn Construction provides services for a variety of public and private clients throughout Florida, North Carolina, and Texas. Market sectors include multifamily, senior living, country clubs, educational, municipal, healthcare, faith-based, retail, and commercial. Kaufman Lynn Construction’s mission is to consistently deliver superior buildings and construction projects by relentlessly advancing the client's vision, beyond expectations.
