Redevelopment of the Eagle & Phenix property in downtown Columbus is pushing forward with 44 new apartments on pace for an October opening and an upscale restaurant making its debut August.

Columbus-based W.C. Bradley Co., which owns the former textile mill structures and land overlooking the Chattahoochee River, is also repairing a third building for future use. There will be 29 two-bedroom units and 15 with one bedroom, ranging in size from 650 square feet to 1,300 square feet. Progress continues to be made on sales of loft condominiums in a third building called Mill No. 3, with 60 of 88 units -- including two that were combined into one -- now occupied, while three units are pending sale.

The next major piece of the mill's menu will be the opening of an upscale restaurant called E.P.i.c. by local chef Jamie Keating. The 72-seat eatery is scheduled to debut on August 1st. It is located on the bottom floor of the five-story building. The Eagle & Phenix redevelopment, launched in 2004, is a decade-long, $50 million renewal of the former mid-1800s-era textile mill on Front Avenue. W.C. Bradley bought the 16-acre property from the former Pillowtex Corp. in 2003, as that company was going out of business.

I'm looking forward to the restaurant opening. It is going to be really nice. Hopefully it will overlook the whitewater course.

$6.9m Final Stage Set to Begin


The final piece of the Eagle & Phenix rehabilitation is now under way, with the W.C. Bradley Co. starting work on the five-story building known as Mill No. 1 and a three-story former machine shop.

There will be upscale apartments similar to Mill 2, ranging from 800 square feet to almost 2,000 square feet.

The last phase, which comes with a price tag of about $6.9 million, should be completed by spring of next year. The developer confirmed there is a waiting list for people wanting to lease one of the 29 apartments in Mill No. 1 and one of the three in the former textile mill's machine shop building.

Already having been converted to apartments is Mill No. 2, located next to the 13th Street bridge. It has 44 units, while the two-story administration building has 14. They both are full, with rents at roughly $1 per square foot.

W.C. Bradley Co. is transforming the mid-1800s-era red-brick mill on Front Avenue into a mixed-use complex that centers around condominiums and apartments. The $50 million project was launched in 2004, with 83 condos being retrofitted into what is known as Mill No. 3 -- the massive structure closest to the water tower. There are 10 units remaining

The developer is looking for an eatery that offers more affordable cuisine than EPIC, with some retail in the mix. They would like to land a gourmet supermarket in the first-floor space facing Front Ave.

They have been shopping the old powerhouse structures looming over the Chattahoochee River to restaurant prospects from Atlanta.

Long term, W.C. Bradley plans to wait five years on the apartments it is now leasing to turn them into condos for sale. That's the period of time required for the company to capture all of the tax credits it received for the project.

Awesome urban project for downtown.

I wish they were a tab bit cheaper, they go for $8 dollars a sq ft so it $800 plus for renting. I would like to see more high rise apartments downtown to buildup population down there. Then more restaurants and more foot traffic will be created. I always thought that they should build some kind of high rise hotel where the 14 st. plaza will be built, because that is a large area for just a plaza. Maybe put a hotel next to Country's barbecue and let the bottom floor be used for commercial. I think that would be an awesome idea.
