In 1974 the Carrboro Board of Aldermen decided to have the mill demolished. Their ideas for the property included building a new, "modern" shopping mall. However, members of the Carrboro-Chapel Hill community (led by local resident Frances Lloyd Shetley) appealed to the the Carrboro Board of Aldermen for the restoration of the mill. In June 1975, the mill complex was nominated for the National Register of Historic Places (and was owned by Edward E. Yaggy, Jr.).

In 1977 the structure was reopened as Carr Mill Mall. The complex now houses mainly restaurants and stores, with commercial office space on its upper levels.
