Mill No. 5 brings transformation to Lowell

Building being reborn is truly ‘mixed use’

LOWELL — The renovation of Mill No. 5 gives new meaning to the real estate term “mixed use project.”

At heart an office building for small businesses and technology start-ups, the former textile mill is being renovated with a kind of fun-house brio to attract the eclectic, off-beat, and hip: boutique movie theater, yoga studio, farm-to-table restaurant, a lounge/library in the style of an English manor — the whole thing decorated with architectural materials salvaged from the likes of Dr. Seuss’ house.
