Mixed-Use Residential and Retail Complex

A 100,000-square-foot, five-story mixed-use development will house about 200 students on the upper floors and create new retail and public meeting space on the first floor. Students residing downtown will be part of a new civic engagement curriculum at Colby, which will include connections with community organizations like the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter and the Waterville Public Library.

The College plans to break ground in spring 2017, with occupancy in fall of 2018.
