Kingsley is a vibrant urban district that seamlessly blends new construction with the surrounding landscape to evoke the character of a restored textile mill. The design team infused the story of the Springs Industries legacy throughout the project, merging historic context with a contemporary mill style to celebrate the past in fresh and surprising ways. A rich collection of murals, brickwork, paving patterns, and lighting present industrial details at a comfortable scale, creating the backdrop for community to flourish.
In addition to the mill aesthetic, the design emphasizes Kingsley’s natural environment, with a four-acre lake as the Town Center’s shining centerpiece. Overlooking the lake is the development’s central gathering space, The Yard. Activated by bustling restaurants, this terraced green space is the common ground for community events. Complete with European-style plazas, main street shopping, waterfront dining, and an amphitheater, Kingsley honors the region’s textile legacy while offering a mixed use solution to diversify the town’s economy.
