State, local officials tour $39 million Loray redevelopment project

The thud of hammer blows and the buzz of power tools echoed through the Loray Mill redevelopment project Monday as state and local officials toured the century-old structure, deep into a $39 million renovation.

“It’s incredible what (developers) have been able to accomplish here at Loray Mill,” said Susan Kluttz, secretary of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources. “It took incredible vision to take this mill from what it was to what it is now.”

Kluttz was in Gastonia touring the first phase of Loray Mill’s historic redevelopment. More than 100 state and local officials, media personnel and project developers toured the first floor.
