Colby College

In an effort to revitalize the historic downtown, Colby College is working with the City of Waterville and other partners to rejuvenate a four-block section that will transform Main Street into a destination for visitors, residents and new businesses.

A signature piece of the master plan is the new 100,000-SF, five-story Bill and Joan Alfond Main Street Commons that will house 200 students on the upper floors, and create new retail and public meeting space on the on the first floor. The students will be part of a special curriculum involving community engagement, and include four- and six-bedroom apartments for Colby faculty members and one-bedroom units for resident assistants.
