Roosevelt Mills Groundbreaking ceremony
Groundbreaking For Mill Project Slated April 28
4:50 p.m. EDT, April 21, 2010 Hartford Courant
The groundbreaking ceremony that will mark the transformation of the former Roosevelt Mills sweater factory into residential and commercial space will take place April 28, according to Mayor Jason L. McCoy.
The ceremony, which will take place at 2 p.m. on the site of the once busy factory at 215 East Main St., had been set for March 30 but had to be rescheduled due to inclement weather.
The development, to be known as Loom City Lofts, will include 68 one-bedroom apartments on the upper floors and roughly 10,000 square feet of retail and office space on the first floor. The project is supported by state funding through the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development.
Roosevelt Mills has been vacant since 1998. Before anything could be done with the site it had to be cleaned up. Tests showed it was polluted with chlorinated solvents including tetrachloroethene, a cancer-causing chemical that was used to dry-clean sweaters. Another chemical, sodium persulfate, was used to destroy the tetrachloroethene and itself will breakdown into sodium and sulfate, two elements found naturally in the soil that are not harmful.
The mill was built in 1906 and was one of the first reinforced concrete buildings in the country. It was the last textile factory in Rockville, once known as the Loom City, to go out of business.
— Joseph A. O'Brien Jr.
Vernon Mayor Jason L. McCoy is pleased to announce a groundbreaking ceremony for the long-awaited Loom City Lofts project on March 30, 2010 at 1 p.m., on the site of the former Roosevelt Mills sweater factory, located 215 East Main St., Vernon. The landmark mill was built in 1906 and has remained vacant since the mid-1980's.
Development plans for Loom City Lofts include a combination of residential and commercial use, with sixty-eight one-bedroom apartments intended for the upper floors, and approximately 10,000 square feet retail and office space planned for the first floor. The project is anticipated to take approximately 15-18 months once construction begins. The State of Connecticut and the Department of Community and Economic Development (DECD) provided funding for this project.
Additional questions can be answered by contacting Mayor McCoy's Office at 860-870-3600
