The Lofts at 7714 Tenant Directory

Whether you’re looking for a larger (or smaller) space, an easier commute, more affordable rent or a truly unique location with a touch of history to it, Mint Hill has just the thing–The Lofts at 7714, a retrofitted mill property in one of the fastest growing towns in the greater Charlotte area.

Available Commercial Space in The Lofts at 7714

Of the 10 distinct spaces in The Lofts at 7714, only one is currently available. Suite J is a three-room, 1,280-square foot space that works for office, retail, or light industrial use. It would also make a great location for a fitness, dance, yoga, or artist studio. Suite J includes the following features:

Room 1: 765-square foot room
  • Room 1: This 765-square foot open area can accommodate multiple workstations or act as a showroom or storeroom. It has an internal entry/exit to the building’s common area and a large garage door that leads to the building’s common loading dock, making shipping and delivery functions easy and convenient.
  • Room 2: This 300-square foot office area includes a large picture window that looks into the 765-square foot area, and it connects to both of the other rooms.
  • Room 3: This 215-square foot fully private office also has an internal entry/exit to the building’s common area.

Convenient Location from Anywhere in Charlotte

The Lofts at 7714 is located in the heart of Mint Hill’s downtown business district right on Matthews-Mint Hill Road (Highway 51). The nearest I-485 interchange is less than five minutes from the building, so it’s easy to get to from just about anywhere in Charlotte.

More Affordable than Other Charlotte Rents

Room 3: 215 square feet

In addition to its small-town charm and easy access, commercial rents in Mint Hill tend to be less expensive than other areas of Charlotte. And unlike expensive adaptive reuse spaces in NoDa and Southend, The Lofts at 7714 offers some of the most affordable rents in Mint Hill even though it’s the town’s only surviving textile mill that’s been retrofitted.

Saying Goodbye to Mint Hill Yoga as It Moves Online

After eight years as a valuable tenant in The Lofts at 7714, Mint Hill Yoga is closing its physical doors and re-imagining itself as a virtual yoga studio as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

To start, Mint Hill Yoga will offer four public practices per week via Zoom. Going into the fall, special outdoor offerings and Meditation and Practice workshops are planned. Additional public classes may be added, and private lessons with owner and yoga instructor Bettie Shea are always available.

A Small Business Success Story

Bettie Shea’s Mint Hill Yoga is one of the original tenants in The Lofts at 7714, which was the 2012 reinvention of this former mill property into its current adaptive reuse space in downtown Mint Hill that houses up to 10 commercial tenants.  


Mint Hill Yoga in Suite G

As she was starting her yoga studio in 2012, Bettie initially rented out a section of the Lofts then-vacant anchor space, Suite B (now home to Spotlight Performing Arts Academy), on Sunday afternoons. Once she determined there was enough interest for a full-time studio, Mint Hill Yoga leased the smallest space in the building, the 250-square foot Suite G.

Although it was a nice little space for a start-up, Bettie worked to make it her own as a soothing studio for yoga and meditation. She installed new flooring, created a flowing ceiling with white fabric and painted the walls a soothing blue. The atmosphere along with Bettie’s welcoming personality soon grew Mint Hill Yoga’s client base.


Mint Hill Yoga in Suite E since 2014

By the summer of 2014, Bettie outgrew Suite G and moved her thriving yoga studio into the larger 685-square feet Suite E, where she has been ever since. She once again imprinted her personal touch on the space and continued to grow her business. 

In January of this year, Mint Hill Yoga was a thriving space where yoga students came to learn, practice, meditate, knit (yes, knit) and socialize. Bettie had renewed her lease for another year with JMMT Partnership, the owner of The Lofts at 7714, and the future was bright.

Then the pandemic hit. But true to form, Bettie did not give up. She, like many other small businesses, is figuring out how to keep her livelihood going by pivoting to an online format. Last month, she informed JMMT Partnership of her decision to close up her Suite E studio as of the end of August. 

“We are so sad to see Bettie and Mint Hill Yoga leave The Lofts at 7714,” said Mary Crotty, managing partner for JMMT Partnership. “She has not only been a stable and reliable tenant for the last eight years, she has been such a wonderful caretaker of this retrofitted mill property. Our family can’t imagine the building without her.”

“From one female-majority, family-owned, local small business to another, JMMT Partnership wishes Mint Hill Yoga all the best in making a go of this new online format and thanks Bettie Shea for eight terrific years as a tenant in our building,” stated Ms. Crotty.


The Posh Paper Lady Joins The Lofts at 7714 Tenant Community

Suite H - internal entranceThe Lofts at 7714 adds another female entrepreneur to its thriving business tenant community in downtown Mint Hill. On July 1st, The Posh Paper Lady moved into the building’s 500-square foot Suite H, which was vacant for only one month.

“My sister Margy Pettit and I were thrilled to help Sherry make that transition,” said Mary Crotty on behalf of the managing partners for the family-based JMMT Partnership, which owns The Lofts at 7714. “Our father originally bought this former mill property in the early 60’s to house his own small business concern, and we really like carrying on that tradition by leasing to entrepreneurs who also dream of being their own boss.”
