Inspired by the courtyards of textile mills, Broadcloth Commons is a contemporary space that can quickly shift from main street to festival street. Broadcloth Commons is special in its use of textile patterns in new and surprising ways. Paving, brickwork, graphics, and lighting will be contemporary interpretations of the Springs textile legacy.
Broadcloth Commons is the place for block parties and market days. Modeled after great social spaces where people are more important than cars, this is where front doors and storefronts spill out into the street. With a hotel, restaurants, retail, offices, and apartments, Broadcloth Commons is where many uses come together to create a vibrant and lively place.
In the heart of the project, the Kingsley Stack will thoughtfully reinterpret smokestacks of the past and serve as a gathering place and beacon for the project.
