The historic Woolen Mills factory building is over 160 years old.

The area where the building stands today once was a bustling port with a history that stretches back before the city was founded. It’s approximately 97,000 square feet across three buildings, with the main building having 4 floors. The two saw tooth buildings, connected to the main building by a historic breezeway, are each 15,000 square feet. There is even more room to build on the 10-acre property.

The property is located at the convergence of Moore’s Creek and the Rivanna River. It’s about 1.5 miles or a 10-minute bike ride to Downtown Charlottesville and even closer to neighborhood hangouts like Beer Run and Riverview Park. The owner's vision for renovations involve a vibrant mix of commercial and residential uses.
