AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Beacon Real Estate Group is beginning a $3 million improvement plan at the Enterprise Mill in Augusta, a former cotton mill that’s now a mixed-use housing and business complex.

Upcoming improvements to the 1450 Greene St. complex include interior renovations to all 60 loft apartment homes; new landscaping; north and south tower beautification and signage upgrades; a fire pit gathering area; tenant buildouts for office users; and more.

Beacon previously invested more than $2 million to enhance Enterprise Mill’s amenities, add 24-hour security and address deferred maintenance from before the firm’s 2016 acquisition of the property.

Originally constructed in the 1840s, Enterprise Mill is a renovated former cotton mill adjacent to the historic Augusta Canal.

Each of Enterprise Mill’s one-, two- and three-bedroom loft apartments have unique features and design components, including wide plank pine floors, exposed brick walls, ceilings that are at least 15 feet tall and oversized windows. Amenities include a resort-style fitness center, business center with conference room, on-site ATM, courtyard, grill and picnic area.

Enterprise Mill is also home to a 2,400-square-foot event space that hosts many weddings, with room to accommodate functions of up to 250 people. Full-service catering is provided through Fat Man’s Hospitality. The on-site museum, Augusta Canal Discovery Center, is a go-to field trip destination for area schools.
