Boott Cotton Mills in Lowell, MA is a 19th century brick mill complex listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. The 500,000 sq. ft., multiple-building property was converted into a vibrant mixed-use complex, partially occupied by an industrial history museum managed by the National Park Service. The remaining buildings are devoted to Class A office/industrial and residential use.

West Mill contains three buildings totaling 200,000 sq. ft. The four-story west portion of the mill was converted into 108 exclusive, “true loft style” condominiums totaling over 125,000 sq. ft. The units, ranging from studios to two bedroom duplexes, overlook the adjacent Merrimack River.

Amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, a spacious roof deck, a 12 hour concierge and easy access to the Merrimack Riverwalk, located directly behind the mill.
