The Town of Mint Hill, in which The Lofts at 7714 is located, is transforming from a sleepy town into a thriving hub of commercial and residential activity just outside of Charlotte.
The Town of Mint Hill’s website calls it “the perfect setting for business owners and professionals seeking a prosperous, vibrant, thriving community for doing business.” It also boasts the following rankings: 12th on “America’s Top 12 Power Suburbs” and 13th in the “Safest Places in North Carolina.” It lists the median household income as 32 percent higher than the national average.
The downtown business district primarily extends from Lawyers Road to Highway 218. Along that stretch, visitors will find the recently completed Town Hall, along with several completed and under-construction new commercial developments. Sprinkled throughout the new development are Mint Hill fixtures, properties that proudly represent Mint Hill’s deeply rooted rural past. These include the Carl J. McEwen Historic Village, a living history museum operated by the Mint Hill Historical Society, and the Woof ‘n Hoof, Mint Hill’s long-time pet and feed store. Both lend charm and context to this growing Charlotte suburb.
The Lofts at 7714 also counts itself among Mint Hill’s historic fixtures. Developed in 1945, this 18,810 square foot, brick-front building originally housed the King Craft hosiery mill, employing 40 local residents. Retrofitted into 10 distinct commercial spaces and re-branded as The Lofts at 7714 in 2010, this former-mill-turned-multi-use-commercial-property continues to employ local residents, as well as provide a space for local small businesses and entrepreneurs to start and grow their ventures.
