R1 Success Story: Mayo Mill, Dover-Foxcroft, ME

For over 100 years Mayo Mill provided jobs in wool and wood production for the town of Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. It has now been redeveloped into a thriving multi-purpose and mixed-use complex of sought-after apartments and offices that are drawing new residents and businesses into the downtown area. An unprecedented shared vision among a group of partners - good timing and realistic goals led to the redevelopment of this abandoned and contaminated mill into 80,000 square feet of residential housing, commercial use, and a data center expanding much needed broadband internet access for this rural town of 4,200 residents.
