Living In The Cotton Mills District
The Cotton Mill District is an urbanite’s dream come true. Literally a refurbished cotton mill from the turn of the century, this district is currently part of a tremendous rejuvenation project that is seeing several condominium buildings being built. Across the street from the current loft-style building (pictured) is a refurbished mill that features professional office space for accountants, our local radio stations, and a health and legal centre. A quick drive through this area will allow you to see just how much development is going on – with 2 condo building projects currently being built and several more in the works.
Plans are in place for this area to house some 100+ loft-style condos right along Cornwall’s beautiful waterfront. Most of the lofts in this area will have some sort of river view from the balconies or windows.
The area is primarily being developed to accommodate professionals and retirees. Most condos are 1 or 2 bedroom and therefore may not be considered the best spot in town to raise a family, however singles, couples and retirees will find themselves right at home. Prices for these lofts can range from $250,000 to $500,000 depending on view and size.
Lofts and condos are currently for sale and can be custom designed to match your style and needs. Plans are in place to continue the area’s revitalization by attracting restaurants and amenities and to completely upgrade the waterfront area.
