Carolina Fashions factory in Mauldin targeted for redevelopment


The former home of Carolina Fashions Costume Shop and Factory in Mauldin could one day house 300 luxury lofts and a food hall, a Greenville developer told the Upstate Business Journal.

The 100,000 square foot facility on Bon Air Street was also the former home of Her Majesty, a manufacturer of children’s clothing.

The building, which is 20% occupied by remaining Carolina Fashions team members working to clean up the building, can be used as an “adaptive reuse project,” said Colton Miller of Zenith Real Estate.

Miller said in February the company presented preliminary plans to a dozen community members to convert the site into a mixed-use development with around 300 luxury loft-style apartments and an attached food hall. Proposed amenities would include:

  • Well-kept green spaces in the courtyard/square
  • Outdoor terrace
  • lawn games
  • Pool
  • Crossfit-style gym
  • Decorative fences and border landscaping
  • Fenced playground
  • A café/bistro terrace on the roof

Zenith Real Estate – which is expected to take over full ownership of the site from New York-based owners in December – is also considering other mixed-use options but has not publicly provided details.

Once the company has made a firm decision on the design direction it wishes to pursue, it will schedule another neighborhood meeting at the Mauldin Cultural Center, Miller said.
