The groundbreaking ceremony marks the redevelopment of one of Clinton’s largest historic mill complexes. The historic 150,000 square foot Bigelow Carpet Mill is a centerpiece of the revitalization plan to enhance Clinton’s historic downtown neighborhoods. The project plans to include a pet salon and Bark community park, restaurant and bar, salon and spa, and a home for over 150 residents.

Jack’s Mill will be built and managed by local developer Cunningham Equities.

“We are beyond excited to begin construction of the Jack’s Mill project, and it was only possible with the support of state and local authorities, our partners at Cornerstone Bank and Preservation Massachusetts,” said James Cunningham, Director General of Cunningham Equities. “Located in the heart of Main Street, we hope Jack’s Mill will contribute to Clinton’s economic success and development for years to come.”

Jack's Mill is located at 500 Main St. in Clinton.

Jack’s Mill is Cunningham Equities’ third project in Clinton; it completed construction of 39 residential apartments at 55 Sterling St. in November last year.
