The property was constructed between 1915 and 1920, with three interconnecting mill buildings that have been renovated throughout the building’s lifetime. Currently, Cabotville Industrial Park consists of a multi-tenant, office, retail, and industrial facility on a lot totaling 16.49 acres.
EBI completed a Structural Observation Report to observe the general structure, condition of the substructure, superstructure, and facades at the property. The structural evaluation identified the extent of observed structural damage and provided suggested repair or maintenance items considered necessary for the property to continue in its current or rehabilitated operation, compared to properties of similar age and condition.
Based on observations, it was concluded that the building was built to code at the time of construction. Most of the structural components were in sound and in good to fair to poor condition overall. Recommendations were made to the client regarding areas for structural improvement.
Following the completion of the structural evaluation, EBI worked to assist the lender in its underwriting of a proposed construction loan for Cabotville Industrial Park. EBI worked to assess the viability of the proposed project and to suggest additional documentation needed, clarifications required, or actions necessary to comprehend the extent, nature, and conditions of the proposed construction. The renovation consists of a multi-phased overhaul of the 5-story mill building to be converted to 280-unit apartments. The anticipated timeline for construction is 18 months.
