The Stone Arch Lofts is a new post-tensioned flat slab structure built on the site of one of the original mill buildings in the downtown riverfront district.
Eight levels above grade with three levels of parking below, the building foundations, while resting on bedrock, had to span over numerous mill race and tail race tunnels carved into the bedrock that were a remnant of the former mill operation.
