Mint Hill Offers Perfect “Old and New” Combination in Charlotte Suburbs

Dec 25, 2011 - March 9, 2012 311

The Lofts at 7714, a retrofitted mill property located in Mint Hill’s downtown business district

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.

A Big Thanks to Lofts’ Tenant Mint Hill Martial Arts

The kind folks at Mint Hill Martial Arts, in particular Chris Facente and Glenwood Barnes, are helping The Lofts at 7714 complete a cosmetic remodel of the building’s restrooms.  Over the weekend, they worked very hard to have the floors painted, some of the walls painted, curtains hung and more, in time for the Yoga Workshop held at The Lofts on Sunday afternoon.  

The restrooms are original to this 1945 mill building, including the architecturally appealing wood doors for both the ladies and men’s rooms.   Giving them a cosmetic facelift is just one of our goals in transforming this vintage mill building into a distinctive work space for local entrepreneurs, merchants and creative souls.

A big thanks to Chris, Glenwood and the Mint Hill Martial Arts students for their help in bringing our vision for The Lofts at 7714 to life.

And the 1945 Headline Read…New Hosiery Mill Slated

The Lofts at 7714

As the owners of The Lofts at 7714, we are committed to learning more about the building’s initial origins.  Not only have we uncovered the faint etching of “King Craft Hosiery Mills” now that we’ve returned the masonry at the top of the building to its original state but we’ve also uncovered the local news coverage of the mill’s introduction to the public. 

And the headline read… New Hosiery Mill Slated

In a 1945 summer edition of The Charlotte News, a former daily newspaper out of Charlotte, North Carolina, Mint Hill took it’s place alongside Charlotte, Belmont, McAdenville and other Mecklenburg County communities as home to one of the region’s textile mills, thus providing employment at the time for up to 40 people in Mint Hill.


The King Craft Hosiery Mills will establish a plant at Mint Hill next month and expects to get into operation by Sept. 1.

This was announced today by Mrs. Herman S. Dersch, a partner in the firm. 

A lease agreement on file at the Courthouse disclosed that Carl J. McEwen, Charlotte and Mint Hill undertaker and business man, had agreed to construct a building to house the concern and to have it ready by Aug. 15.

The King Craft concern, it was explained, is a partnership composed of Herman S. Dersch of Jackson Ave., Charlotte, Ellen B. Dersch and Ellen R. Caywood.  On last April 30 it purchased the Kingston Hosiery Mill on 118 E. Kingston Ave. here and will use this equipment until newer machinery becomes available.


Mrs. Dersch said the building, to be of cement block construction with brick facing, would be 65 by 112 feet in dimensions and would provide ample space for twelve machines.  The lease agreement filed at the Courthouse stipulated that the building should be on a lot 125 by 250 feet.

Mrs. Dersch said that at present 45-gauge machines would be used but that orders had been placed for 51-gauge ones and these would be installed as soon as they become available.

Approximately 40 employees will be used at the start, Mrs. Dersch said.

We plan to start moving in about Aug 15, Mrs. Dersch said.

The lease, filed in the office at the Register of Deeds John R. Renfrow, set forth that the cost of construction plus 6 per cent plus $450 should be taken as the value of the property in fixing the rental and option to purchase.

The lease was for five years at an annual rental of ten per cent of the property’s value.

Mrs. Dersch said she understood Mr. McEwen planned a housing project for possible use by employees of the mill as soon as materials could be obtained.

Mr. McEwen was out of the City and could not be reached for a further statement on this.

The Lofts at 7714’s Past Uncovered with a Little Help

If you happened to be driving through downtown Mint Hill yesterday along Matthews-Mint Hill Road, you probably noticed some unusual work going on at The Lofts at 7714.  There was a truck, ladder and hose all aimed at the front exterior in hopes of uncovering something of the building’s past.

We know that the building was originally constructed to house a hosiery mill and we were hoping to find evidence of that in the way of a sign or engraving within the original masonry in the center top front of the building, something akin to what you see at Nebel Mills in Dilworth/Southend in Charlotte. 

This brick framed out section had been painted over many times.  Until yesterday it was a brick red.  But then with the help of a sand blasting crew, the past started to come into soft relief.  Restored to its original state, the masonry reveals the faint etching of letters originally painted or affixed to the building spelling out “King Craft Hosiery.”   

These letters are evidence that Mint Hill, for a time, capitalized on the textile boom that helped develop Charlotte and it’s surrounding communities.  And that original mill building is still standing strong as a piece of Mint Hill’s history just as the Charlotte Cotton Mill, Atherton Mill, Alpha Mill and, of course, Nebel Mill do in Charlotte. 

With only four commercial spaces remaining in Mint Hill’s only retrofitted mill property, don’t miss out on your chance to locate your business at The Lofts at 7714.  Contact us today at 704-491-1472 or 704-968-8286.

Jane Yates Art Moves into The Lofts at 7714

MINT HILL, NC, January 10, 2012 – Jane Yates, a professional artist specializing in oil paintings, portraits and photographs, has moved her art studio into a 250 square foot space in The Lofts at 7714 in downtown Mint Hill.

A native of Virginia Beach, Virginia, Jane grew up on the Chesapeake Bay.  This close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the marshes along the Bay engendered an early love of nature that inspires much of the artist’s present work.  Jane’s keen eye for composition, light variance and texture is visible in her nature-inspired works as well as her abstract oil paintings.

Jane will use her new studio space to continue to create her original pieces, along with fellow artist Candace Bridge.

Jane’s 250 square foot studio space is one of ten, unique commercial spaces located within the recently renamed building located at 7714 Matthews-Mint Hill Road.  Four spaces, varying in size from 375 to 3,600 square feet, are currently available for office, retail or studio rental in The Lofts at 7714.
