Tocci is pleased to announce a new historical renovation project: Ponemah Mills in Taftville (Norwich) Connecticut

This old cotton mill was built immediately after Civil War, in 1865, on the banks of the Shetucket River – a major tributary off of the Thames River.  It is five stories high and features two gorgeous towers, a corbelled brick façade, and a second empire mansard roof.

The owner, Onekey, LLC, has been developing this project for three years. Initially designed as luxury condominiums, and now planned as 235 market-rate apartments, the units will be duplexes with 14’ high ceilings and mezzanines for the 4th and 5th-story units. Once the mezzanines are completed, the project will total 290,000 square feet.

Tocci is currently working with the owner on cost engineering efforts to assist the owner and architect in creating a more efficient and cost-effective building. Our scope of work will include site improvements and extensive interior and exterior renovation.

Construction is anticipated to commence in early June 2010 and be completed by August 2011.
