Closed in 2008, the old mill is set for conversion to retail space including a public tennis court and open courtyard used for hosting events.

“This has been a long time coming,” said Hill, who began planning the renovation three years ago. “The mill use was incompatible with the neighborhood — there’s been conflict ever since it was here — so I think a retail center would be a much better fit.”

The two buildings under renovation include a 21,600-square-foot building that borders Commerce Avenue and a roughly 19,000-square-foot building that is recessed on the property and does not front either of the two streets, though there is access from Commerce and Southwest Columbia Avenue.
