New 'micro-apartments' planned for Saco
SACO (WGME) – A former mill in Saco could be home to several new small apartments, or "micro apartments."
The Saco planning board is looking at a proposal to build 22 of the so-called micro-apartments inside the mill on Saco Island.
Right now, the first floor of building is home to the Run of the Mill Public House and Brewery.
A developer wants to build the apartments on two floors above,
Each would be about 470 square feet.
The city's mayor says they are seeing a lot of interest from millennials who want to escape expensive rents in Portland.
