CORNWALL – The next phase of the Cotton Mill Lofts is open for business – and living.

Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy and members of RMP Construction held a ribbon cutting ceremony today (Thursday) from one of the balconies of the building on Cotton Mill Street.

Meanwhile outside the Edison Building – phase one of the four phase project – workers are still busy finishing their work.

The redevelopment project is pegged at roughly $60 million.

The building will be a mix of residential and commercial – including a pharmacy and office space.

Like the Weave Shed, developers have made it a very open-public concept.

The Edison is reportedly about 65 per cent spoken for, with some of the new tenants including a retired Supreme Court judge.

More construction is expected to continue next year.
