36 Chestnut Street
The Lofts at Bates Mill, our first Lewiston project, is the adaptive re-use of an 1854 Bates Manufacturing Company textile mill, Mill #2. The Lofts at Bates Mill features 25 one-bedroom, 16 two-bedroom, and 7 three-bedroom apartments. The Lofts at Bates Mill is the first apartment housing built in Lewiston’s Mill District. The project completely transformed the west façade of this classic redbrick mill structure (see before and after photos). Features of the project include 13-foot ceilings, exposed timber framing, large windows with abundant natural light, and an expansive view across Fountain Park and the Bates Mill Complex to the Androscoggin River. The project is a short three-block walk to the services in downtown Lewiston and is on a local bus line. Residents enjoy a fitness center and community room with computers.
