Pepperell Mill Campus Now Home to Over 100 Businesses
It’s no secret that there has been steady increase in business activity in the North Dam Mill portion of the Campus over the past few years. Even more recently, construction at the new Pepperell Center has continued the growth of the Pepperell Mill Campus. We’ve been extremely busy over the summer leasing new space to Portland Pie Co, Angelrox, Round Turn Distilling, and The YARD, that our number of tenants has finally hit and exceeded the triple digits.
We’re extremely grateful that so many businesses, patrons, mill residents, and citizens of downtown Biddeford and Saco have believed in this redevelopment project. Our vision to create a progressive and sustainable urban community within the mill district is really starting to take shape. There is so much synergy and increasing activity going on here, and it’s invigorating. We couldn’t have done it without the support of the banks, businesses, and suppliers we’ve worked with.
There’s a saying we like to use around here, “We’re redefining the buildings that defined our past”. It holds some weight as we reflect how far we have come. It’s funny to think that for over 100 years, 1 business ran this entire mill complex and brought Biddeford years of prosperity, and today over 100 businesses are located in the mill complex bringing Biddeford back into the spotlight.
