Cottonwood Acquires 267-Unit Historic Restoration Property in Charlotte, NC

Cottonwood Residential recently acquired Alpha Mill Apartments in Charlotte, North Carolina. This 267-unit property was uniquely transformed from a historic cotton mill to an upscale apartment community. Its unique location is just blocks from Uptown, Charlotte, and two miles from the Arts district of NoDa.

“Alpha Mill combines the classic design of the restored historic buildings with some of the best amenities in the area,” commented Brandy Hall, Vice President of Property Management at Cottonwood Residential.  “People want to live here because of the convenient Uptown location.”

Residents can choose from nearly 30 different floorplans at Alpha Mill with one and two bedrooms, or studios. The apartments nicely blend modern finishes with historic charm, offering ceilings up to seventeen feet, exposed brick and wood beams, concrete floors and oversized balconies.

According to Chad Christensen, President and CEO at Cottonwood Residential, “Alpha Mill typifies what we’re trying to do in growing our portfolio with unique assets where we can create additional value for investors and residents.”

Alpha Mills has an expansive pet park, two large fitness centers, a resort-style pool, and an outdoor lounge with a fireplace and grilling area. Three sky lounges provide outstanding Uptown views. For more information about leasing an apartment please visit
