Interior Renderings Released for Cable Mills Images provide detailed view of residence interiors when completed
WILLIAMSTOWN, MA (July 28, 2009) -- Mitchell Properties, LLC, developer of the Cable Mills project and Harsch Associates, exclusive marketing representatives in Williamstown, announced the release of the interior renderings of Residence 302 at Cable Mills. The images provide scaled, three-dimensional views of the kitchen and of the living/dining rooms of Residence 302 and are a preview into what will be built inside these historic mill buildings along Water Street.
"People have loved the exterior rendering we have; showing the building's relationship to the river, the landscaping, and how meticulously the masonry will be restored, so we wanted to give a glimpse into the equally impressive interiors that are planned," said Dave Traggorth, project manager for Cable Mills who announced the release via Twitter, the project website www.cablemills.com, and the Harsch website www.harschrealestate.com.
Jim Alexander, principal of Finegold Alexander + Associates, and architect for Cable Mills along with notable area projects such as the Mohawk Theater in North Adams was pleased with the resulting images that are based on his design. "It can be difficult at this stage in the process for some buyers to imagine how historic mill buildings with 14-16' ceilings, exposed brick and beam, and oversized windows create wonderful living spaces, but these images show how years of experience with these types of buildings and hundreds of hours of design time can yield exceptionally comfortable, beautiful living spaces that people could call 'home' and will enjoy for years to come."
Tom Greenwood, of Sofield Studios in New York and Berkshire native from New Ashford, was commissioned by Mitchell Properties to complete the images in a collaborative process that took several weeks. "Each component of these images - from the stainless steel appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen to the exposed brick walls and oversized windows in the living and dining rooms was based on the actual construction drawings and specifications developed by FA+A and Mitchell Properties." Tom went on to explain that in order to make the image as realistic as possible the he obtained photographs taken by Paul Harsch of the brickwork in the actual space that will become Residence 302, and used the images as the basis for the exposed brick in the rendering.
Residence 302 is one of 30 residences currently available for purchase at Cable Mills. Residences start in the $250's and Residence 302 with 2 bedrooms and 2 bath is offered by Harsch Associates for $449,900. Kevin White, Director of Sales for Cable Mills said that "while each residence is unique, every one has similarly large windows, tall ceilings, and quality finishes, allowing people to imagine how their particular residence will look when completed even if it is not Residence 302."
Mitchell Properties has commissioned several additional images from Sofield Studios. "Natural light, exposed brick, oversized windows, and tall ceilings are the perfect canvas for any style -- be it contemporary or more traditional, so we look forward to showing some of the different options in these magnificent spaces." said Paul Harsch of Harsch Associates.
Traggorth said that the team has been busy and responding to over 400 inquiries from people living in the Berkshires and across the country, providing tours of the building, and preparing for the start of construction. "We're excited to now have the complete picture - between the tours, exterior renderings, and interior renderings, our efforts have been focused on showing how Cable Mills will become a fantastic place to live." But more than anything he said, "we look forward to making it all a reality." He noted that initial masonry restoration and stabilization work is scheduled to begin within weeks.
