Stories of Impact



NDC will join project partners and local community representatives at the The Lofts at Ponemah Mills to celebrate the official ribbon cutting opening of the first phase of the apartment homes with the groundbreaking of the second phase.

More information about the event can be found HERE.

Ponemah Mills was once the largest cotton mill in the country, today this historic building is being transformed into a massive mixed-use project. The project will be completed in three phases. When complete, the entire 7.4-acre campus—consisting of 5 buildings for a total of 650,000sf—will include 314 residential units, a museum, a multi-media event space, community gathering space with a kitchen, a waterfront park, and fitness center.  Phase I opened one year ago with 114 residential units, including 60% affordable and 40% market rate in the first phase. The phase 2 is now underway.
