A new makeover has gone down in the Ridgewood area, in Queens. A site that used to be employed for manufacturing was made over into a residential tower. The building will be known as The Mill and will be inaugurated come September. This is a seven story construction that will include eighty nine rental units. The site is at 1626 Madison Street, where the Philru Knitting Mills used to be. Among the 89 units The Mill will have, people will be able to choose from studios, one bedrooms and two bedrooms apartments.
The leasing and marketing aspects of the building are handled by a company called MNS. Its CEO, Andrew Barrocas, declared that rents for studios will start at $1,750, whereas one bedroom rentals will go for $2,000. For two bedrooms, prices start at $2,500. As far as Barrocas is concerned, The Mill will be the nicest building in the Ridgewood area, once it opens its doors next month. Barrocas has good reason to believe this: besides the living units, The Mill will have a rooftop terrace, a courtyard, a lounge with a fireplace, room for storing bikes and a laundry room and parking spaces on site.
Besides being “the nicest” building in Ridgewood, The Mill will also be the largest residential one in the area. An even bigger tower, the seventeen-story tall Ridgewood Tower is being constructed presently. This other tower is based at 54-27 Myrtle Avenue and 336 and 350 St. Nicholas Avenue. Nevertheless, The Mill will be able to enjoy being the largest for a while, since no opening date has been set for The Tower yet. [QNS]
