Mill Metamorphosis: Sanford, Maine, Eyes New Life for Old Building
A 100-year-old vacant mill will become the site of a new mixed-use development project in Sanford, Maine, thanks to a $3.7 million revitalization grant through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. The project will include commercial units on the ground level and 40 affordable housing units for seniors on the upper level. The project has sustainability goals and incorporates access to public transit options, affordable housing, employers and other services. The revitalization of the mill is expected to have positive effects on surrounding neighborhoods. Read the blog entry.
