Former carpet mill to be razed; site to offer green space
Published: February 11,2013
GREENVILLE — The city of Greenville will tear down the old US Axminister Carpet Mills plant and convert the site into green space.
The Delta Democrat Times reports the city this past week approved a demolition contract with Huntington Machinery Inc. and Gentry Demolition LLC. The companies will tear down the building, which has been empty for about a decade.
Under the contract, the contractor agreed to pay the city $150,000 for demolition services in exchange for any steel, copper, wire, concrete, piping, iron and other salvageable materials inside the building.
City officials say contractors expect the demolition to be completed within 10 months.
