Mill No. 1 is an adaptive reuse of 19th century cotton mill buildings into a mixed-use development project of apartments, offices and restaurants, developed by Terra Nova Ventures, LLC. The architecture team, Alexander Design Studio, has figured out how to make this complicated project work, while keeping the integrity and character of the historical buildings.
The buildings straddle the Jones Falls stream for about a third of a mile stretch of this pristine and beautiful section of the Jones Falls. This setting is what distinguishes and makes the property unique among the mill buildings situated in the Jones Falls Valley in Baltimore.
