LACONIA — Chinburg Builders, Inc. is nearing completion of the conversion of the 18,000 square foot building at Beacon Street West into 30 rental units — called Perley Canal Mill — and a model apartment is being shown to prospective tenants.
The 30 units, most on two floors, consist of four flats, five studios, and six one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom apartments. The four flats and five studios are single story units, with four of the studios on the ground floor and the fifth along the four flats on the upper story. Four the studios are 632-square-feet while the fifth, with an entrance and foyer on the ground floor measures 778-square-feet. The four flats, with an entrance leading to staircase on the ground floor, mirror the dimensions of the studios immediately below them.
The half-dozen one bedroom units range between 703-square-feet and 2,128-square-feet. In three of the units the kitchen and living area is on the ground floor and the bedroom upstairs while the other three have an entrance and foyer on the ground floor and all the remaining space above. The two bedroom apartments are between 1,032-square-feet and 1,375-square-feet,. In 14 of the units the kitchen and living area is on the ground floor while in the remaining unit there is a bedroom on the ground floor and the rest of the apartment on the upper story.
All units have patios and some balconies. Like the condominiums the apartments feature 18-foot ceilings, oversized windows and exposed brick and beams. Residents have access to a club room, fitness center and laundry. The building overlooks the Winnipesaukee River and stands alongside the outlet of the Perley Canal while the property is bordered by the Downtown Riverwalk.
The studios and flats rent from $875 to $1,075, the one bedroom units from $995 to $1585 and the two-bedroom units from $1,445-$1,895.
Chinburg Builders began redevelopment of Beacon Street West — the old Allen-Rogers Mill — a decade ago with the conversion of two buildings along Water Street into condominiums and townhomes. The Perley Canal Mill building is situated toward the center of the property.
