$170 Million Development Planned at Old Mill Site

There’s a potential economic boon on Macon’s horizon.

A developer wants permission to invest $170 million to develop the old Bibb Mill site downtown.

Plans include two new hotels, 400 new homes, and office space.

The 30-acre site of Bibb Mills No. 1 closed more than a decade ago after a century of production.

State officials are reviewing the project because of its size and potential impact.
