Prospective developers tour Fall River’s King Philip Mill

FALL RIVER – Developers are touring the King Philip Mill, a 750,00-square-foot complex the city hopes to auction off for possible redevelopment.

An unsuccessful request for proposal was tried to sell the property, located on Kilburn and Dwelly streets and on the banks of Cook Pond, by City Administrator Cathy Ann Viveiros, the city’s custodian of tax possession.

Two potential developers recently toured the property.

Bidders must present their plans for redevelopment to South End neighbors of the structure on June 15, according to The Herald News.

The opening bid is set at $585,000 and is being sold “as-is,” which includes additional remediation of contamination. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Management have done some initial cleanup.
