M Residential


Talk about conscientious recycling. Conversion into shops and studios has always been an efficient use of derelict old mill complexes, but turning them into residences is even more useful. Back 215 years ago, the sprawling brick buildings that are now M RESIDENTIAL bustled with the hum and clatter of manufacturing. Now one is filled with the sounds of families. The condominiums — 39 so far — have views of a wide and gracefully curving waterfall and a landscaped Blackstone River promenade, along with boating access and a waterside cookout terrace. At various times housing up to six manufacturing operations at once, the building was one of the last mills operating on the river when its last occupant Elizabeth Webbing Mills, left in 2001. What with the current disrupted housing market, deals are being made, including reduced closing costs. | 555 Roosevelt Avenue, Central Falls | 401.725.5550 |
