The developers behind Atlanta’s Krog Street Market are joining a team that plans to redevelop a former rubber mill in North Charleston, South Carolina, with a 20,000-square-foot food hall and offices.
David Cochran and Merritt Lancaster of Paces Properties are working with South Carolina Rep. William Cogswell of Charleston-based Wecco Development and Jay Weaver of Weaver Capital Partners as Garco Mill Developers.
Garco Mill is a two-story building off of Montague Avenue near the city’s Olde Village that once housed General Asbestos & Rubber Co. (GARCO). It was built around 1901.
The developers bought it from the city in 2015 for $1 million. They planned to invest $18 million upgrading the site.
Garco Mill will include a 20,000-square-foot, 16-stall food hall and 60,000 square feet of office space.
“The food hall at Garco Mill will provide restaurateurs and retailers with an opportunity unlike any other,” Cochran said. “We are looking forward to immersing ourselves in the local community and creating a gathering place for all to join around the table.”
Krog Street Market in Atlanta is in a 1920s-era warehouse and has more than 20 stalls, including six James Beard Award-nominated chefs and mixologists. Travel & Leisure magazine has named it one of the world’s best food halls.
