62 Spring Street

Auburn, Maine     Auburn Housing

This 4-story mixed-use project will put residents in the middle of all that walkable Auburn has to offer. The L-shaped former Dillingham Funeral Home site is near Court Street, across from the historic Auburn Public Library, across Spring Street from a grocery store, with easy access to the Auburn Riverwalk and public bus lines. Site planning creates a courtyard with drop-offs at either end of the entry plaza and on-site parking under and adjacent to the building. Building amenities, including mailboxes, waste/recycling room, and bike and carriage storage, share the ground floor with two retail units. A community room and laundry facilities are located on the second floor. Affordable housing occupies the second, third, and fourth floors, with a mix of studio, 1-bedroom-, and 2-bedroom units. This high-performance building with many energy efficient features will enhance resident comfort and lower operating costs for Auburn Housing.
