The Mill at West End

Good news! The Fayetteville Planning Commission this evening unanimously approved plans for The Mill at West End project at the intersection of West Avenue and Prairie Street. Ken Shireman is the architect for the project planned by Milver Investments that consists of two buildings on either side of West, along Prairie Street, featuring 17 condos geared toward young professionals, 3,700 square feet of restaurant space, and 8,327 square feet of office space on 1.25 acres.

The funky Fayetteville Mill District, south of the square between Center and Sixth Streets and connected to Dickson Street by the Frisco Trail, includes the studio where the World Peace Prayer Fountain was created, a French bakery, a book bindery, glass blowing, graphic design classes, art galleries, book art classes, digital arts, custom-made furniture, and Nightbird books among the shops and services that can be found in the area.

We commend those with the vision to propose this vibrant development that enhances the sense of community in south Fayetteville and is consistent with the Downtown Master Plan.
