Lyerly Mill | Hickory


Zapolski Real Estate and its partner Delphi Development are seeking buyers, tenants, or joint-venture partners for an exciting historic renovation project in western North Carolina.

Located in Hickory, NC a historic town fast becoming a center for the creative economy, the former Lyerly Hosiery Mill Building is a premiere redevelopment opportunity. This opportunity is made all the more attractive by the availability of very significant federal, state, and local tax credit and grant programs, that will reimburse the owners in excess of 60% of the qualified costs of redevelopment. Built in 1930 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the original Mill building is just over 37,000 square feet. Featuring enormous windows on the northern and southern walls, high ceilings, and wide plank pine flooring, the Old Lyerly Mill is ideal for adaptive re-use as office, retail, and/or residential units. The site is over 4 acres in size, capable of supporting significant additional development. Excellent visibility and high traffic counts on important local routes add to the site’s potential.
