LENOIR — The Blue Bell at Lenoir Mills has officially opened, offering residents spacious loft living in downtown Lenoir.


Developers Yorke Lawson and Tom Niemann held a ribbon cutting for Blue Bell at Lenoir Mills Thursday, April 21 to officially open the Blue Bell loft apartments in downtown Lenoir. Nearly 200 people attended the event, including N.C. Senator Warren Daniel, N.C. Senator Ted Alexander with Preservation North Carolina, N.C. Representative Destin Hall, N.C. Representative Jay Adams, Mayor Joe Gibbons, Councilmen Jonathan Beal, Ralph Prestwood, and Kent Greer, County Commissioners Randy Church and Mike LaBrose, and representatives from the State Historic Preservation Office.


During the ceremony, Niemann gave a brief history of the project that’s been six years in the making, and he thanked the city’s “Dream Team,” consisting of Mayor Gibbons, City Manager Scott Hildebran, Downtown Economic Development Director Kaylynn Horn, and Planning Director Jenny Wheelock, for helping bring the project across the finish line.


Forty-three of the 46 market-rate loft apartments have been leased. Amenities include fibre Wi-Fi throughout the building, side-by-side washers and dryers, full kitchen packages, a fitness center, bike storage room, individual storage compartments for residents, and much more.


This project has successfully saved an historic mill and brought more upscale residential units to the city. Presently, quality, market-rate housing is the biggest need in Lenoir and Caldwell County, and the Blue Bell demonstrates that prime housing in the downtown area is welcome and supported.
