As the former home to an historic carpet mill, it connects local companies to the city’s industrial roots. Housed in the former Masland Carpet Mills, the facility was chosen for its rich industrial heritage and for the rare opportunity to revitalize a unique Philadelphia architectural landmark. The building held carpet magnate CH Masland and Sons’ manufacturing facilities from the late 1880s until the company vacated in 1929 for Carlisle. Some of the era’s finest and most popular rugs were made within its walls.
The Loom: Richmond Mills buildings feature over 250,000 Sq Ft of reclaimed industrial space redone with modern conveniences, making it the quintessential Philly loft space. It offers studios, workspaces, co-working space, and manufacturing floors of all sizes. Studios feature large windows and much of the original wooden construction. Despite modernizations like Internet, security, indoor café, and outdoor green space, the building still reflects America’s industrial heritage, both in feel and with remaining infrastructure such as loading docks, passenger elevators, and multiple freight elevators accessing all floors.
