In 2010, owner and entrepreneur, Michal Bay purchased and began restoration on the original Moor Turkish Towel Company Mill located in Mooresville, NC. Now known as the Merino Mill, it is a business center and host to numerous large and small corporate headquarters, manufacturers, creatives and freelancers. Here you will find the award winning Aliño Pizzeria, The Barcelona Burger & Beer Garden and one of the south's largest antique malls, Main St. Antiques & Design Center.
Merino Mill has been honored with numerous awards and accolades, including the 2017 “Great Transformation” Award, sponsored by the North Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA-NC). Additionally, in 2012, a 1.6 megawatt photovoltic (PV) solar plant was installed on the roof, with the University of North Carolina Charlotte annually purchasing Renewable Energy Credits generated by the solar plant and leasing 24,000 square feet for solar technology research. It is the largest solar paneled roof in the state of NC.
Our newest tenants include Nativeceuticals, Westmoreland Productions, Susie Films, Nest and Bower, Defined Coffee, Cavotech, Old Castle, Pet Screeners, Modern Furniture Studio and Soul Wellness.
COMING SOON: MILLWORKS, a Co-Work and Entrepreneurial Center.
