Linwood Mill Apartments

Northbridge, MA

Located on the banks of the Mumford River in the historic Blackstone River Valley Corridor, the historic adaptive reuse of the former 19th century cotton mill creates a thriving extension of the Northbridge community. The program features 75 affordable units for the 55+ senior population with resident amenities to include a lounge/library converted from the former engine room providing billiards, a reading area, fireplace and kitchen, as well as surface parking; and 20,000 square feet of ground level retail space. The firm ensured the mill retained its historic architectural integrity carefully restoring the Victorian mansard roofs, trim and historic bell tower, as well as leaving existing wood columns, beams and decking exposed through the common areas and resident units.
