Preparations begin for work at the former Nashua Corp. mill


NASHUA — Preparation work has begun for the removal of asbestos from the boiler house at the former Nashua Corporation mill in the city.

The Nashua Telegraph reports a permit for interior demolition and hazardous material remediation at the 310,000-square-foot Franklin Street space was filed in December.

Asbestos, once commonly used in and around boilers, is a serious health concern.

The long-vacated mill and its adjacent boiler house were purchased by Brady Sullivan Properties Inc., of Manchester, New Hampshire on Aug. 14.

Plans call for the development of apartments at the location, which is situated along the Nashua River. The multi-story brick mill will be converted into 168 loft units in addition to on-site parking for future residents.

Developers say the project will keep the mill's character intact.
