NWBRV has engaged in many historic rehabilitation projects over the years. Here are three examples of our work:
Stillwater Mill, Burrillville
Construction is complete on Stillwater Mill in Burrillville, RI. Now called the ClockTower Apartments, this development includes 36 affordable and 7 market rate rental units in a historic mill on the Clear River. The brownfields redevelopment opened in June 2011, costing $19 million to complete using Federal and State Historic Tax Credits. The site is adjacent to the town’s new library complex, helping bring new life and foot traffic to the town center.
Hope Street School, Constitution Hill, Woonsocket
The Hope Street School is a historic school in Constitution Hill that NWBRV renovated into a day care and family support center. The $6.2 million project was funded in part by Federal and State Historic Tax Credits as well as New Market Tax Credits. Completed in 2007, the facility is run by partner, Connecting for Children and Families.
Northeast Street Mill, Constitution Hill, Woonsocket
Construction is completed for this mill building, now called the Mary A. Longtin C3 Center, on the banks of the Blackstone River. The former mill was converted into six apartments and models our In-Residence program. The six apartments are rented to six community builders (teachers, artists, scientists, etc.) in exchange for 16 hours of work per week with the community. The space also includes a youth learning center and community meeting space.
40 South Main Street, Woonsocket
This project marks a substantial rehabilitation of the former Mulvey’s hardware. It includes six one-bedroom residential loft-style apartments, an incubator kitchen, a large multi-use event space, retail space, and patio. Located at the gateway to downtown Woonsocket in the Island Place Historical District. This urban development is the first piece of our ARTech Hub which will be comprised of over 50 residential units and ample commercial and retail space along the beautiful Blackstone River.
