June 5, 2014

On May 20th, the Maine Real Estate and Development Association (MEREDA) held their annual Spring Conference. At this event they recognized last year's most notable commercial development projects that not only embody MEREDA's belief in responsible development, but also involved a significant investment of resources and job creation state-wide. Six developers were celebrated for their responsible practices including environmental sustainability, economic impact, energy efficiency, social impact and job creation. The Sanford Mills renovation project was among the winners.

Northland Enterprises received an award for the Sanford Mill Historic Renovation, which renovated 66,000 square foot former textile mill into 22,000 square feet of commercial office/retail space and 36 residential apartments. This $11.5 million public / private partnership utilized historic tax credits in order to preserve the twentieth century architectural features to complement the modern day amenities like a gym, library and outdoor patio for the tenants.
