If you have lived in, or spent much time in, New England over the last few decades, you have probably noticed that all of the old mill towns in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts are in the process of being gentrified.

In the 1990s and early 2000s, these towns and small cities were dying a slow death.  Many of the mills that made them boomtowns in the late 1800s and early 1900s had closed.  Once those major employers shut their doors, the smaller businesses that supported the workers of those businesses also closed.  It was a sad situation.  But now, that’s changing.

In the last 10 to 15 years, we have seen new life in those cities and towns.  These old mill buildings are being gutted, sectioned off, and turned into new businesses.  These spaces are being used for light manufacturing businesses, they are being turned into stores, and being turned into restaurants & bars.  The upper floors of some of these buildings are being reclaimed for use as apartments.

Lewiston, Maine is no exception to this rule.  In fact, you may be surprised at how one of these old buildings has been turned into a massive, luxury condominium.

According the Realtor.com, the 4th floor of Lewiston’s Lyceum Hall has been converted into a massive 5,500 square foot condo.  The condo has 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ bathrooms.  It features a massive great room with beautiful hardwood floors, a dining room, an industrial kitchen, and a wood-fired oven.  One of the most amazing features of the property is the deck which provides the residents with amazing views of Lewiston’s vibrant downtown, the Androscoggin River, and more.

You Won't Believe The Luxury Condo Overlooking Downtown Lewiston

Located on the top floor of the old Lyceum Hall in downtown Lewiston is a massive, luxury condo. As of December 30th, 2021, the price was listed at $599,000. Get all the details HERE

According to Wikipedia, Lyceum Hall was built in the mid-1870s by Maine architect Charles Francis Douglass.  The third floor was once home to a 1,000 seat performing arts center.  In 1986, the building was on the National Registry of Historic Places.

The current list price is just under $600,000.  Assuming you put down at $140,000 at closing, your monthly mortgage would be about $3,300.  That would include principal, interest, taxes, insurance, etc.
