A complete renovation of the Fabreeka Mills textile factory Standish Village is located in the heart of the historic Lower Mills neighborhood which borders Dorchester, MA, and Milton, MA. Other restored mill buildings are clustered close by along the Neponset River, including our famous neighbor, the Baker Chocolate Factory. The neighborhood now includes a variety of retail shops and condominiums. Residents enjoy, within walking distance, an array of dining, shopping and banking services.
While the residents of Standish Village enjoy a chic yet historic building, recently renovated and nestled in a quaint up and coming neighborhood, it’s the people of our community that really make Standish Village something special.
