Loft Restoration – In the 1850’s, Lowell was the largest U.S. industrial complex as a manufacturing center for textiles. Today, many former textile factories that were left abandoned have been found to be ripe for conversion and renovation.
The Boott Cotton Mills is one such example of the restoration efforts occurring in Downtown Lowell today. This set of factory buildings has been repurposed to house 232 apartments, 39 condo units, commercial space, and a museum.
Managed by WinnResidential properties as well are the Loft Two Seven units. Not far from the Boott Cotton Mills is another beautifully renovated relic from the Industrial Age. These lofts have been updated to accommodate Lowell’s growing population in the downtown area.
As Downtown Lowell moves ahead on redeveloping once-abandoned textile plants, projects like Mill No. 5 emerge. The former mill building has become a unique retail outlet housing carefully selected business that feature everything from a rustic coffee shop, weekly farmers market, independent book shop, to cheesemongers.
Lowell is getting a new courthouse. The long-overdue update has already broken ground and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. Overlooking the historic Hamilton Canal, it will now house the superior, district, juvenile, probate and family, and housing courts all under a new roof.
A prominent feature of Lowell since its incorporation nearly 200 years ago, the waterways and canals have been given a fresh lift. Today, pedestrian walkways have been constructed along the waterways including the restoration of benches, lighting features, and safety railings. With the rich history of downtown, each walkway can be explored as a tour of the city and the changes it has undergone through the ages up to the present day.
