Danville city council reviews presentation on White Mill

By  | 

DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) -- A special Danville City Council meeting was called at 5:30 Thursday night to discuss potential plans for White Mill.

The 650,000 square-foot building has been vacant for more than a decade.

With a $25,000 grant from Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development, the city was able to do a feasibility study and conceptual plan of what can be done with the building.

Ideas include a hotel, apartments, a rooftop pool and restaurant, offices for a business, and even a zip-line.

Architecture partners out of Lynchburg are presenting the pictures and ideas to the city council.

Telly Tucker, Director of Economic Development for Danville, said there is no timeline as to when any of the redevelopment could happen.
