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.

Owner Sherry Williams will curate and publish crafting videos for her YouTube channel The Posh Paper Lady within Suite H. Her latest videos celebrate Christmas in July, with projects on creating your own holiday decor and cards.

In addition, Sherry will produce her unique paper-based products that are for sale on The Posh Paper Lady Sellify page. 

Sherry’s crafting business started out as a hobby in her own home. After two years and significant success (hundreds of crafting videos), she was ready to move into a commercial space.

“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.”

The Posh Paper Lady joins five other female owners leasing commercial spaces in The Lofts at 7714. These woman-owned organizations make up the majority of the building’s tenant community:

  • Spotlight Performing Arts Academy owned and operated by Angela Gordon Mills
  • Pottery 51 whose board is currently all female, led by president Maria Frey
  • Mint Hill Yoga owned and operated by Bettie Shea
  • Kiersten Clay Photography
  • Cleaaan Ventures owned and operated by Evans
  • The Posh Paper Lady owned and operated by Sherry Williams

With Suite H leased, The Lofts at 7714 is fully occupied. To join our waiting list and be notified first of any future available spaces, email property management at marycrottywriting@gmail.com.

“We are thrilled to welcome this creative entrepreneurial firm to our tenant community,” said Mary Crotty, managing partner for JMMT Partnership, the owner of The Lofts at 7714. “The fact that it is focused on sustainability in the design and production of its merchandise is an added bonus.”

Spring is Coming and So Are Commercial Suites in The Lofts at 7714

Two commercial spaces will be available for rent later this spring in The Lofts at 7714, the retrofitted mill property located in downtown Mint Hill. If you’re in the market for a new commercial site for your business, check out these upcoming vacancies:

Suite G: 250-Square Foot Office Space

This small suite is a one-room space, perfect as an office for a small business or individual entrepreneur, or as studio space for an artist, photographer, jewelry maker or other artistic/crafting business.

It features a large interior picture window, and its entrance is one of just a handful of original wood doors from the textile mill’s past. It’s high ceiling, neutral walls and attractive wood laminate flooring make it move-in ready.

Suite G will officially be available May 1, 2020, however, it’s possible that a tenant could move in by April 1.

Suite H: 500-Square Foot Office Space

This two-room suite’s attractive internal entrance is a door with a full glass panel for high visibility, as well as blinds for privacy. It leads into a smaller front office or reception area with an external window. Beyond it is a hallway area with room for storage and supplies that leads into the larger office with its own external window.

This space has been used for multiple purposes in the last 10 years, including as a personal trainer’s space, an attorney’s office, and a drafting/photography studio.

Suite H will officially be available June 1, 2020, however, it’s possible a tenant could move in sooner.

Need a Bigger Space?

The entrances to Suite G and H are located less than 10 feet apart, so they could be successfully used together for a single business tenant in need of a bigger space, or two coordinating businesses who benefit from close physical proximity.

In addition, Suite H shares a connecting, but sealable, door with the 1,400-square foot Suite I, which is also available. Its open floor plan exudes a cool and collaborative industrial vibe with exposed ceilings, concrete flooring, and a roll-up door with a sliding glass door overlay to let in natural light. Suite I is also the only rear-entrance suite in The Lofts at 7714 to have its own private exterior entrance.

A combined Suite I and H rental would suit any business in need of dedicated office space along with an open area for additional work stations, a retail or studio environment, or inventory storage.

Vibrant Tenant Community
