100 Saco Falls Way
This project is an adaptive re-use of an 1845 textile mill building adjacent to the Saco River falls in Biddeford. It is a key component in the renaissance of the Biddeford Mill District, from a collection of aging industrial buildings to a vibrant, mixed-use neighborhood offering public access to the Saco River. Features of the project include magnificent views of the Saco River and falls, and a short walk to both the Amtrak station on Saco Island and Biddeford’s historic downtown. Residents enjoy a fitness center, outdoor play area, home theater room, and community room with computers.
