SECOND BUILDING AT HAMEL MILL LOFTS OPENS
HAVERHILL, MASS. — The grand opening has been held for the second building at Hamel Mill Lofts, a 305-unit multifamily project located in Haverhill. Known as The Pentucket, the eight-story building contains 60 units. The first building at the four-building complex opened in December 2008. Known as The Essex, the structure totals eight stories and contains 71 units. The other two buildings, a nine-floor, 163-unit building known as The Tilton, and a two-story, 11-unit building known as The Powerhouse, will open this December. Developed by Forest City Residential, Hamel Mill Lofts consists of the historic redevelopment of the former L.H. Hamel Leather Company Complex, a shoe manufacturing facility that was first built in 1916. All buildings feature one- and two-bedroom units with rents ranging from $1,100 to $1,800 per month. Amenities, which will be located on the first floor of The Powerhouse, include a fitness center, a screening room, a game room with a billiards table, a community room, a resident lounge and a cyber cafe. The property is currently 37 percent leased.
