Arbroath mill delivers power to the people
February 1 2021
Hillcrest Homes with jmarchitects have finished the renovation of a former weaving mill in Arbroath to form 24 affordable apartments.
Delivered by Culross and George Martin Builders the £2.9m project has carved out the former power loom halls to provide a mix of one and two-bedroom properties, all while upgrading the A-listed fabric to be as energy-efficient as possible.
David Zwirlein, Hillcrest director of development, said: “The redevelopment of Arbroath’s Baltic Mill into good quality affordable apartments marks an exciting step in the preservation of a building which has been a historic icon in the town for many years.
“Having sat empty for so long, we’re delighted to bring a new lease of life to the 158-year-old building."
Period features within Baltic Mill such as handrails, walls and stairwells have been retained as part of this work with an original cast iron weighing mechanism standing proud in the main lobby.
