INTRODUCING RIVERDAM – Port Property’s newest residential community

We’re so excited to introduce our newest residential community – Riverdam.  Located in the heart of Biddeford’s historic Mill District, this property consists of two historic buildings known as the Riverdam Mill Complex.  

Situated on the banks of the Saco River, Riverdam was originally built in 1842 to produce machinery for the textile industry.  The architecture of the mill, extraordinarily rich in detail, is highlighted throughout the property.  After playing a vital role in the lives and livelihoods of the greater Biddeford-Saco community for decades, the historical buildings had recently been underutilized and vacant but for two commercial tenants.  

The transformation of Riverdam from a 19th century industrial building to a sophisticated rental community has been underway for months.  Renovations have been extensive, with all new framing and systems to accommodate an unrivaled suite of modern amenities in brand-new one bedroom and townhouse apartment homes.  

Nearly every Riverdam unit offers a different floor plan, capitalizing on the buildings’ historic features – original brick, beams and large windows – and spectacular location. A number of select units feature dramatic views of the Saco River falls, private roof decks and private patios – perfect spots to enjoy morning coffee or share cocktails with friends.  All units are pet friendly and include parking, 24/7 on-call emergency maintenance and trash/recycling removal – no city bags!     

When all phases of renovations are complete, the Riverdam complex will consist of four commercial spaces and 71 apartment homes.  As this community continues to undergo its transformation, residents will soon have access to:

  • Shared rooftop deck with built-in fire table overlooking dramatic waterfall views
  • State-of-the art fitness center
  • Riverfront resident lounge with full bar and fireplace & entertainment center 
  • Indoor bike storage and the area’s only bike sharing program
  • Pet grooming/washing room
  • Dedicated covered parking in the City garage on Pearl Street

Riverdam is also home to two popular local businesses, Blaze Brewery and Stone Fort Distillery, and residents will have direct access to the RiverWalk – a walking bridge and trail which offers pedestrians access to sites along the river.  Riverdam is a place where residents can truly live, work and play.As construction is progressing, a number of units can be pre-leased now for occupancy in spring 2021. You can browse available units on Riverdam’s website, and subscribe to the Riverdam enewsletter to be sure you don’t miss out on pre-leasing announcements!
