Atlantans Buy Historic Mill

The historic Prattville mill buildings, which have had several owners since they formed the heart of Daniel Pratt’s cotton gin empire and the center of Alabama commerce, have been sold to Atlanta real estate development company Longstreet Capital.

The city has been asked to rezone the property to allow multi-family development by Pratt Mill Properties LLC.

Describing the properties as “one of the most beautiful and architecturally important structures left to be redeveloped in the country, ” Pratt Mill’s Burke Lambert told WSFA that his firm hopes to create a project the whole community can appreciate.
