Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate and Lincoln Revival, LLC, are pleased to announce the revitalization of the historic Lincoln Mill property located at 1300 Meridian Street North in Huntsville, Ala. Developers plan to introduce several amenities to the 220,000-square-foot complex that will usher in a new era for the property. The site’s restoration will also help bridge the gap between downtown and the north Huntsville educational corridor, further connecting Drake State Community & Technical College and Alabama A&M to the city center.

Updates will be made to the property’s overall look and usability, and on-site food, beverage, and retail options will be added. Phase one of redevelopment began in May 2020 and the project is expected to be complete in late Q4 2021.

“Our vision is to enhance the beauty of this historical landmark,” said Wesley Crunkleton, Principal of Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate and Owner/Developer of Lincoln Mill. “Lincoln Mill is an exciting undertaking because of its history—it represents Huntsville’s industrial past and technology-driven future. All of our developments take on their own identities and we can’t wait for Lincoln Mill to do the same.”

Located moments from downtown Huntsville’s core, Lincoln Mill stands apart in its ease of accessibility, proximity to the city’s main business district, and its unmatchable architecture, design, and historical influence. All of these features combined make it the ideal candidate for a revitalization—one that will showcase its distinctive spaces, its ability to further serve the community, and connect the area of downtown with north Huntsville’s educational center.

“One of the greatest features of Lincoln Mill is its location,” said Crunkleton. “It’s situated in a growing retail corridor on Meridian Street that is already home to some of the city’s most popular businesses like Preservation Company, Holtz Leather, Brooks & Collier, and the coming L’Etoile Patisserie. Restoring Lincoln Mill is the next step in activating the district, adding connectivity, and further opening the area to new business opportunities housed in one-of-a-kind spaces.”

Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate will make Lincoln Mill a dynamic work environment for all of its tenants—both new and legacy. The facility is being updated with amenities that reflect its tenants’ requests, which are aimed at improving the site’s functionality, productivity, tenant retention, and overall comfort.

“Phase One of the project will consist of exterior improvements such as painting, lighting, landscaping, and adding additional parking,” said Crunkleton. “Interior improvements will take place as well to the common areas like adding an improved, larger elevator, wayfinding signage, and updates to lobbies.”

When Phase Two begins, attention will be focused on the campus’ historic Dye House.

“The Dye House is an integral part of the property’s history,” he said. “It currently sits abandoned at the front of the site and we plan to utilize the space to house retail along with one or two food/beverage concepts that will benefit the campus and its tenants. All will be updated while maintaining the site’s historic integrity and vibe.”

The project team for Lincoln Mill’s redevelopment is made up of local experts including Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate, Matheny Goldmon, Joe Still Building Company, and Lanier Ford.

Lincoln Mill and the Mill Village Historic District have a substantial history that spans over half a century. What began in 1900 as Madison Spinning Company eventually grew into one of the area’s largest and most productive textile mills. Over its lifetime, Lincoln Mill has seen growth, despair, rebirth, and transformation—giving way for industrial and scientific advancements that helped shape the City of Huntsville. This current redevelopment will mingle the property’s history with its future of housing modern companies in one-of-a-kind spaces.
