Kokes Properties is set to unveil nearly two dozen townhomes that will mark the first piece of a new 190-unit luxury residential project in Burlington County.
The developer said the 22 dwellings, part of what’s known as The Mill at Riverside, are slated to be ready for occupancy by year-end. The firm has launched preleasing at the collection of two-bedroom units, which feature upscale finishes, appliances and technology, as it proceeds with other phases that are slated to come online in the coming years.
“Whether it’s a quick stroll downtown for dinner or short commute into the city, The Mill at Riverside is ideally located for anyone seeking a healthy work-life balance at an affordable price point,” said Michael J. Kokes, president of Kokes Properties. “We’re thrilled to be opening in a few short months and cannot wait to welcome the first group of residents.”
Located at 136 South Fairview St., the project is redeveloping the site of the historic William F. Taubel Hosiery Mill, which was once the top employer in Riverside and among the largest garment factories in the Northeast. Kokes, which acquired the site in 2019 after failed efforts by other developers, has incorporated that history into its design of the complex.
Other phases will include a 64-unit apartment building currently under construction at the middle of the property, which is slated for delivery by July 2022, according to a news release. Kokes also aims to break ground in early 2022 on a 3,000-square-foot clubhouse that will have a fitness center and amenity space for residents, while the final phases will add another 104 apartments.
The developer said The Mill will cater to the growing number of residents involved in hybrid work, while offering functional living space, downtown walkability and convenient access to Philadelphia. The property is a 30-minute drive to Center City and a seven-minute walk to Riverside’s light rail station.
