The conversion of Mill No. 1 comes after the rehab of similar properties nearby. Mill Centre, across Falls Road from Mill No. 1 and formerly called Mount Vernon Mill No. 2, was the first major renovation of an industrial site in the Jones Falls Valley. Completed in the 1980s, it was followed by the redevelopment of Meadow Mill, a former London Fog rainwear production site, Clipper Mill — which was not a mill but the Poole and Hunt Foundry — and, most recently, Union Mill, a textile factory originally known as Druid Mill.
