Mill 19: Vertical development is underway.


With a groundbreaking last fall, construction of Mill 19's Phase A is well underway. The building is currently owned and under development by RIDC. It is in early stages of construction for the first phase (of three), with a completion date of Spring 2019 for Phase A, which is approximately 90,000 sf of Mill 19’s approximately 270,000 sf of future development. Carnegie Mellon University’s Manufacturing Futures Initiative and the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute will be the anchor tenants for this first phase, and for the site.

Mill 19 was built circa 1943 by Jones & Laughlin to house munitions production during World War II. Following the war, it became a rolling mill, producing 10” bar steel. In the 1970’s when LTV Steel took control of the building it was then used to store coke oven brick. Mill 19 is approximately 100 feet wide and 1,200 feet long.
