Here’s an update on all the construction happening at The Mill

Over in the Nemours Building in downtown Wilmington, construction on new coworking space The Mill is well underway. The grand opening is set for April 1 — mostly because guy-in-charge (and local architect) Robert Herrera thought it would be funny to open on April Fools’ Day. This update, however, is — wait for it — no joke. (We’ll be here all week.)

Here’s a status report:

  • The space has a sleek new website.
  • The Mill will be Wilmington’s first coworking space with a full bar, complete with a kegerator. The bar space is designed to fit a full catering crew for events. “It’s a point of pride of mine,” Herrera said of the space. He added that he’s looking for local breweries as suppliers.
  • Customized Bluetooth speakers will be concealed in ceiling tiles of every office.
  • The cap for full membership in the first phase of construction is 55 people.
  • Every office will have at least one window.
  • Herrera thinks small law firms might be a good fit at The Mill because a few offices are acoustically isolated from the rest of the coworking space.
  • Herrera is excited about the details, like, for example, that he gets to use some reclaimed American chestnut wood.
  • In phase one, 10 private offices with sliding glass doors — for $1,200 a month — will be built. So far four have been rented. Other offices: There are six 8-to-10-person offices and one 10-person office.
  • Herrera’s big on sliding glass. Thirty-four desks behind sliding glass doors will also be available for $350.
  • Members can book the 20-person conference room twice a week for free; otherwise, it can be booked for $20-30 based on demand.
  • Phase one construction obviously means there’s a phase two, but Herrera was cautious in getting into those details. “The market will dictate expansion,” he said.
  • Membership for working in the commons space is $45 a month.
  • There’ll be a bookshelf-lined game lounge.
  • Herrera is working with the Hagley Museum to exhibit patents in the lobby. He’s also interested in hanging local art.
