The Kennebec Journal reported on our development of the former Seton Hospital site in Waterville

The site of the former Seton Hospital on Chase Avenue will see a lot of activity beginning in the spring, as construction of a Woodfords Family Services school starts in April and a project to transform the hospital building into a mix of apartments and commercial space begins in the summer.
“We are planning to start April first and deliver the building in six months — October,” developer Kevin Mattson said Wednesday of the Woodfords building.
Construction work on the 150,000-square-foot former hospital building, which in 1997 became part of MaineGeneral Medical Center, is expected to start in the summer and continue for 12 to 14 months, he said.
Mattson, managing partner of Dirigo Capital Advisors based in Topsham, bought the Chase Avenue property more than two years ago for $500,000. He and his partners in Waterville Redevelopment Co., a subsidiary of Dirigo, plan to develop one- and two-bedroom apartments, or possibly all two-bedroom, in the building.
