Wakefield, MA – Callahan Construction Managers announced the completion of interior renovations at Harvard Mills in Wakefield.
The project involved a reimagination of the common areas in the west wing of the historic woolen mill, originally built in the early 1900s.
Developer Taurus Investment Holdings, LLC has owned the building since 1999 and hired Callahan to execute a renovation of the common areas, intending to feature the four-story atrium, exposed brick, and high ceilings throughout the building. The project consisted of modernizing the common areas, bathrooms, and exterior landscaping and design.
Cube 3 served as the architect for the renovation.
Harvard Mills now offers tenants updated common areas and restrooms and a spacious lobby. The brick-and-beam history of the building provides an alternative workspace, different from many other office spaces in Wakefield. The unique design intends to attract creative, collaborative, and technology-based tenants to the building.
“We always appreciate the opportunity to bring new life to historic properties” stated Patrick Callahan, president of Callahan Inc. “As a local, family run business, we like to ensure that the spaces we create both reflect and maintain the traditions of the cities and towns where we build.”
“The Harvard Mills building has been a landmark for the Town of Wakefield for over a century, and Taurus wanted to preserve this history,” stated Peter Merrigan, CEO & Partner of Taurus. “Taurus and Callahan have a successful track record of restoring unique properties, so we knew they would be the right fit for the project.”
Harvard Mills is located two blocks from the Commuter Rail in downtown Wakefield, with a 20-minute commute to Boston’s North Station. Tenants at Harvard Mills include Persimmon Technologies Corporation, Riverside Wealth Management and the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine.
