Merrill’s Wharf

254-258 Commercial Street

Portland, Maine


The Merrill’s Wharf Building is a 100,000 SF Class A office conversion in Portland, Maine. An iconic historical building on Portland’s waterfront, and known along the highly trafficked Commercial Street for its 300-foot brick façade, Merrill’s Wharf was built in 1884 as a spice mill, candy factory, and later operated as a commercial cannery. It was converted to cold storage in the mid-1960s, and two decades later, NRC-affiliate Waterfront Maine acquired the property in 1986. In 2011, Waterfront Maine converted the mill to a Class A office building to capture Portland’s growing demand for office space, while still retaining the building’s historic character and charm. Today, Pierce Atwood LLP is the anchor tenant, with other tenants including Ocean Renewable Power Company and The King’s Head Pub.
