The Past Reborn

The nicest, most unique apartments in Rhode Island are at Royal Mills Riverpoint, just 15 minutes south of downtown Providence. Royal Mills “loft style” apartments enjoy a scenic riverside location featuring a waterfall, outdoor fire pit, bike trail, and river walk all located just minutes between Rhode Island cities, beaches, and suburbs.  

Royal Mills apartments in West Warwick, Rhode Island, located just 15 minutes south of Providence and 10 minutes west of T.F. Green airport offer some of the most unique living/working spaces in America. Situated inside a meticulously restored 110 year-old mill complex, the hydro-powered, riverside apartment community is a truly distinct combination of urban loft-style living in a serene, natural setting.

From the first day of the Royal Mills renovation, the goal was to preserve more than just the character of these impressive, historical buildings, but also as much of the original materials as possible.

As a result, more than 50% of all demolition materials and artifacts were salvaged and reused in innovative ways. So as you explore the property you’ll find looms, gears, planks and stones tastefully re purposed in the signage, railings, public seating, pathways, decor and public areas throughout.

Even the scenic waterfall that divides the complex has been re purposed. Instead of using its power to spin textiles, the waterfall now drives a state-of-the-art turbine creating 1000 MW hours per year – enough electricity to power 100 houses – without emitting an ounce of greenhouse gas.
