Ribbon-cutting Held for Manomet Place
June 5, 2013
In May 2013, Cliftex Lofts LLC, led by its developer, WinnDevelopment, celebrated the completion of Phase I of Manomet Place in New Bedford, Massachusetts with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Manomet Place, formerly known as both Cliftex Mill and Manomet Mill, was a 20th century cotton textile mill complex and is now home to 76 units of mixed-income housing for seniors age 55 and older.
In 2008, Preservation Massachusetts listed Cliftex Mills as one of Massachusetts’ Most Endangered Historic Resources. Epsilon assisted WinnDevelopment in saving this historic landmark by securing tax credits, which were then put towards the rehabilitation.
Epsilon assisted WinnDevelopment in adhering to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, which was used to guide the adaptive reuse of Manomet Place. The property maintains many of the original building’s features such as the existing masonry openings, which were preserved to keep the building’s original appearance in tact; the existing stairway was retained; and the Manomet Mills signage was rehabilitated. The property is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
