Lockwood Mills is a two-building 225,000 SF mill-conversion in Waterville, Maine. Located along the Kennebec River, Lockwood Mills is less than two miles east of I-95, providing access to Northern and Southern Maine. The buildings are situated at the southern end of Waterville’s Main Street commercial corridor, which is in the midst of a major revitalization project spearheaded by nearby Colby College and the Harold Alfond Foundation. The City of Waterville is the recipient of a $7.4 million US Department of Transportation grant to improve its downtown, including the main intersection connecting Lockwood Mills and downtown. NRC currently in the planning stages to redevelop the mills into a mixed-use project with a combination of workforce/market-rate housing and commercial space that will echo the success of the neighboring mill conversion, Hathaway Creative Center (acquired by NRC in 2017). Lockwood Mills was built in the late 19th century as the Lockwood Co. Cotton Mill, and been vacant for many years. NRC seeks to create a mixed-use community development that connects with Downtown Waterville. Lockwood Mills has been owned by NRC since 2019.
