After a few failed attempts, the city of Fall River finally no longer owns King Philip Mill.

According to State Representative Alan Silvia, Robert Kfoury has officially taken ownership of the King Phillip Mill and demolition of two of the three mills could begin in the next couple of weeks.

Kfoury received the Variance and Special Permit approval in the middle of March to move forward in beginning the King Phillip Mill Complex Project.

Kfoury, owner of RK Construction, was granted approval to create 26 single family lots on the Kilburn Street property. The lots will be a minimum of 4,000 square feet.

Kfoury plans to demolish most of the mill buildings while leaving a portion of the mill standing. The mill left standing would be used for apartments, retail and industrial space.

The King Philip Mill complex has long been a safety concern for nearby residents and city officials. With the project one step closer to reality, more tax money to the city of Fall River and a nice green recreational space at Cook pond is looking more and more likely.
