Silk Mill Properties, LLC
Located on 8th Avenue in Altoona, PA, The Mill, which was originally built in 1889, is now a renovated mixed-use facility that will include office space, a café, a restaurant, and apartment units.
While several outbuildings and 80,000 square feet of the original building were demolished, 91,000 square feet was retained, in addition to an annex building and a 90′-tall smokestack that serves as an iconic landmark for the project.
Parking lots, a dining patio, sidewalks, street trees, lighting, and landscaping were all added. Stormwater detention was avoided by adding green space and amended soils to the site, which was previously 100% impervious.
