Make way for more residents in Ridgewood.

The Mill, a brand-new, seven-story residential building on the former Philru Knitting Mills site at 1626 Madison St., is officially open with 89 available residential units to bring in even more people to the neighborhood.

In what is billed as Ridgewood’s largest residential building, The Mill has a variety of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments — averaging 600 square feet — for rent, featuring modern appliances, storage space, and wood grain tile floors.

According to The Mill’s website, there are currently one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments starting at $2,000, ranging all the way to $2,475 each month; and two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments between $2,500 and $3,185 per month.

Residents of The Mill will also be able to take advantage of the building’s rooftop community terrace, pool table, conference room, landscaped courtyard, lounge with a fireplace, bike storage, on-site underground parking, and laundry room.

The site of The Mill, which previously held a post office, a gasoline garage with an underground tank, a knitting mill, a gas station and an auto repair garage, was part of the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Brownfields Cleanup Program in 2014. The Brownfields program offers incentives to property owners who remove contamination from locations for reuse and redevelopment.
