The biggest difference between the luxury and standard apartments is the size of the apartment. The luxury apartments have almost double the square footage of the standard apartments. The luxury apartments also have 18 foot ceilings versus the 12 foot ceilings in the standard apartments. Luxury apartments also have central air.
The biggest aesthetic difference between the two apartment types is the exposed brick walls in the luxury apartments versus the painted brick in the standard apartments.
The appliances in the luxury apartments are powered by natural gas and cost on average about double what the appliances in the standard apartments cost. The cabinetry is also higher end. Luxury apartments also have their own washer and dryer hook ups in the unit. The washer and dryer are not provided but the hooks ups are installed in the walk-in closet.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are interested in a short-term lease you should expect to pay more than the standard rent amount to allow us to make up for the turn over.

Luxury units also include central air conditioning, reserved parking, washer dryer hook ups, and natural gas to power the fireplace, washer/dryer, and kitchen appliances. There are no common area cleaning charges. Your monthly rent is your only cost related to your space at the mill.
A: Due to the high demand for units at the North Dam Mill we keep a waiting list. The list gives us the contact information so that we can contact interested parties as soon as we learn of about a unit opening up. We will contact everyone on the list that has expressed interest in the unit type that is coming available. We will show the unit to any interested party. From there we will take applications and choose the most qualified applicant. The length of time you have been on the list is factored into the decision making process.
A: We do not have subsidized housing. All of our apartment units are market-rate apartments. There is also no maximum on the amount of income a tenant can make.
A: Our apartments are not for sale at this time. We do not have any condominiums for purchase, nor can you customize vacant space within the mill for that purpose. You may be thinking of Saco Island if you heard about mill condos– they have them there. We only have market-rate apartments.
