One Development, Eight Uses
hat can tenants and visitors expect to find at Chronicle Mill? Plenty. Proposed plans for the 6.5-acre site include a 150,000 sq. ft. complex with eight separate uses:
Chronicle Hall – This event space will serve as the biggest public event facility in Gaston County, accommodating large and small groups for concerts, performances, music events, weddings, conferences, exhibitions and more.
Chronicle Amphitheater – The stone-and-grass seating will provide the ideal setting for outdoor concerts, festivals and other activities.
Restaurants – Patrons can enjoy a meal in their choice of restaurants, conveniently located near the event venues.
Brewery/Wine Bar – The spacious lower level of the mill will hold a casual European-style beer hall, with craft beers brewed right on the premises. For wine lovers, the wine bar will provide an upscale haven for sipping a glass or two.
Chronicle Green Courtyard – A beautifully landscaped area will provide a pleasant oasis for relaxing and congregating.
Café with Lounge Area – With two atriums providing cozy seating arrangements, this will be a popular gathering spot – the place to grab a snack and hang out with friends, family or coworkers.
Office Spaces – Businesses can distinguish themselves by having their offices inside a classic turn-of-the-century mill.
Boutique Hotel – Guests will enjoy first-class accommodations, surrounded by a host of activities in a one-of-a-kind environment.
