The Mill at Middletown is an adaptive reuse of a historic 3-story mill building into a 27-unit affordable rental apartment building with 1,300 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor including the Fresh Start Cafe, a culinary arts job training program. A one-story brick annex building will be reused as a 1,200 square foot community space. A 4-story, 15-unit, new construction building extension brings the total number of units to 42.

Tectonic provided services to redesign the parking lot, public spaces, and stormwater management system. Retaining walls were dramatically lowered or eliminated, earthwork was reduced, accessibility and circulation were improved, infrastructure was scaled back, and landscaping was increased. Services also included:

  • Survey (ALTA/ACSM)
  • Site/civil design
  • Utility engineering
  • Construction support
  • SPDES compliance permitting
  • Stormwater Pollution Prevention Planning
  • FEMA elevation certificate/LOMA

Tectonic worked with the development team to transform a municipal approval set of drawings into a construction-ready, value-engineered solution to accommodate the project architect’s ultimate vision for the project.
