Rising Sun Mills is a celebration of Providence’s industrial past, thriving today as a mixed-use campus with 135 exciting residential lofts and 120,000 square feet of dynamic corporate and professional offices. Rising Sun Mills offers supremely appealing amenities for living and working alike. Residents of the loft apartments have access to over 100 unique floor plans in spaces that boast tall ceilings, grand insulated windows, antique wood floors, spacious closets, central air conditioning, and high-efficiency gas heat.
Businesses on the Rising Sun Mills campus include an awesome yoga studio, a great restaurant and café, a lively co-working community, several social-driven non-profits, as well as companies consisting of architects, designers, engineers, pharmacists, consultants, and more. Everyone on campus enjoys amenities typically found in Class A office space. Spacious floor plans, fantastic natural light, spectacular common areas, and plentiful indoor and outdoor parking are easy to find on this eleven acre, richly landscaped campus along the Woonasquatucket River — one of ten National Heritage Rivers in the United States — and make this a very special place.
The Rising Sun Mills campus is surrounded by the city’s top attractions: Downtown Providence, the heart of what is top destination cities in the world, according to the New York Times, to the North-East, Atwells Avenue on Federal Hill, with bars, clubs, and the finest Italian restaurants in the region, to the East, the Armory District, a restored neighborhood of Greek Revival and Italianate Victorian-era houses interspersed with delightful cafés, tree-lined streets, lively parks, and many of the city’s top restaurants, to the South-East, as well as Olneyville Square, a cultural center of ethnic restaurants, retailers, and businesses to the South.
Rising Sun Mills has set the standard for the transformation of the Valley-Promenade area known as the River District, from beautifully restored, historic buildings and significant environmental remediation to refreshing natural features and a diverse community of awesome, caring people. Rising Sun Mills’ continuing success as Rhode Island’s most successful loft project has stimulated widespread interest in the transformation of Providence’s historical mills into contemporary living and working spaces.
