41 State Street
This four story apartment complex of 13 market rate and 14 subsidized housing units was the first development project of The Szanton Company. It is an adaptive re-use of an 80-year old, one-story neighborhood parking garage. Drawing on city, state and conventional financing sources, the project opened in the Fall of 2004.
1 Walker Street
(at the corner of Congress Street)
This six story building opened in October, 2006. Previously the site of an abandoned gas station near downtown, the project transformed the site and area around it. It also helped fulfill the city's objective to provide greater housing density rather than contribute to suburban sprawl. The project features 40 one and two bedroom units, half of which rent to households with incomes below 60% of the area median. The other half rent at market rates. The building is the first in Maine built to Maine State Housing Authority's Green Building Standards.
130 Water Street
This project has 30 mixed-income apartments and 2,600 square feet of street-level retail space wrapped around an 80-car parking garage. The building site was a large surface parking lot on Exeter's main retail and commercial street, where mixed-use buildings had earlier stood for many years. The building opened in September, 2007.
53 Danforth Street
This building has 43 units of mixed-income rental housing and 38 on-site parking spaces, most covered by the building. It is located two blocks from the Old Port district, Portland's shopping, dining, and entertainment hub. Featuring 35 one-bedroom units, 8 two-bedroom units, and a host of "Green" features, the building opened in August, 2009.
100 Saco Falls Way
The Mill at Saco Falls is an adaptive re-use of a classic, red-brick New England mill building. Built in 1845 on the banks of the Saco River, it was used to manufacture cotton cloth. Located two blocks from the center of downtown Biddeford, this 66-unit "Green" project features exceptionally large apartments, on-site parking and laundry, a fitness center, and wireless internet. Also included in the rent are a home theater room and a community room with computers. The building features an elevator, a children's playground, and kayak and bike storage. The Mill at Saco Falls opened in November, 2010.
36 Chestnut Street
The Lofts at Bates Mill is an adaptive re-use of Bates Manufacturing Company Mill #2, built in 1854. The property fronts on Fountain Park and is located in a beautifully redeveloped mill complex which includes offices, restaurants, and shops. This project is the first housing not only in the Bates Mill complex, but in any of the Lewiston mills. Four floors have been converted into 48 mixed-income one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, taking advantage of the beautiful architectural amenities of the mill. These include 13 foot ceilings, large windows overlooking Fountain Park and exposed timber framing. Among the amenities included in the rent are a fitness center for tenants' use, wi-fi access, and a community room with computers. The property opened in November, 2012.
75 Saco Falls Way
This project is another in a series of adaptive re-use projects which the Szanton Company began in 2010. It consists of two connected buildings, built in 1842 and 1867, totaling 92,000 square feet. The Lofts at Saco Falls sits directly adjacent to our 2010 project, The Mill at Saco Falls, and is also part of a complex which sits astride the falls of the Saco River. It offers 80 one and two-bedroom apartments, as well as a landscaped courtyard, fitness center, on-site laundry facilities, and a community room. The property opened in September, 2016.
