COVENTRYâ€” After multiple years and numerous interested buyers, Starr Development Partners and Brady Sullivan Properties have completed the transformation of the 200,000 square foot Anthony Mill into residential units.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the mill Thursday afternoon, giving town and state officials and interested parties the opportunity to view the millâ€™s apartments and amenities.
Chris Starr, owner of Starr Development Partners, began the ceremony by welcoming all in attendance and thanking the copious amounts of people that helped the mill come to fruition.
â€śI guess you could call us the inventors of the project,â€ť he laughed. â€śBut to take the project from concept or invention to reality requires collaboration of so many individuals â€” from elected local and state officials, dedicated municipal and state workers to financial professionals to talented engineers, architects and skilled construction professionals.â€ť
He explained that because the mill is a historic structure built in 1873, the Rhode Island Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission had to be involved with the project as well.
Working directly alongside Starr Development, members of the historical commission approved the developersâ€™ ideas regarding window placement, historic entry door placement and rooftop equipment placement.
