Milder winter weather has been a boon to construction projects across Maine. One contractor that is benefitting from the early thaw is Saco-based PM Construction Co.

  • In South Portland, PM Construction is finishing up the Latitude at Clark’s Pond project, with work on the fourth and final building of the 256-unit apartment complex entering its final stages. The buildings have a variety of layouts, with each unit including a range of bedroom-bathroom setups, as well as laundry and balcony options.
  • In Portland, the Daymark condo project on Chestnut Street is underway. The seven-story, 70,000-square-foot building will include 52 units and high-end amenities. The developer of the $22 million project is Middleton, Mass.-based Procopio Cos. Portland-based Archetype handled design. The lender is the Bank of New England.
  • Also in Portland, the 218 Washington project in Portland is picking up momentum. The condo building will include 45 units throughout four floors, with garage parking and a rooftop deck. The developer is Vincent Maietta.
  • Elsewhere in Portland, PM Construction recently completed renovation of 66 State St., known as Freedom Place, a low-income housing facility that provides services to women who are experiencing homelessness and/or struggling with substance use disorder. The three-story, 20,000-square-foot building has 38 resident rooms, multiple bath/shower rooms and updated kitchen and dining areas, as well as office space. The project was led by Developers Collaborative of Portland.
Work on 218 Washington St., which is on a challenging steep parcel, is gaining momentum.
