Mill Walk

Burke River Trail Association was granted $2500 from Mountain BizWorks for pre-development work to show how the Burke River Trail will flow between the Old Glory Mill and the Catawba River.

David Harmon Architecture was selected to create four renderings of how a two-story restaurant with outside dining space, the trail and access from inside the building to outside could be combined. The brick section in the renderings already exists as part of the mill building.

Focus on the trail was chosen because it was felt most developers focused on the inside of buildings and may not be able to visualize what the 40-mile Burke River Trail will bring to Rhodhiss. Hiking, biking and paddling options at your doorstep are quality of life amenities desired by young professionals and retirees.
