Lexington’s Corley Mill Site to be Theater Site


A developer plans to start work this spring on turning a former sawmill in Lexington into a major retail center with a residential arm. The project, on U.S. 378 two miles west of I-20, is among the biggest developments ever in the steadily growing town of 18,000 residents and perimeter around it.

“It’s a sea change for our community and for the center of Lexington County,” said Randy Halfacre, the town’s mayor and president of the Greater Lexington Chamber of Commerce.

Transformation of the 70-acre sawmill site, once a local landmark, will occur in stages, developer Tony Berry of Rock Hill said.

A long-awaited multi-screen cinema and 234-apartment complex are “both a definite,” but plans for about 16 stores and restaurants are unsettled, he said.
