“We are incredibly excited to become a part of the Charleston culinary scene. The food hall at Garco Mill will provide restauranteurs and retailers with an opportunity unlike any other,” said Cochran. “We are looking forward to immersing ourselves in the local community and creating a gathering place for all to join around the table.”
The press release also promises a one acre park across from the Mill along with the possibility of a movie theater.
