WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - The owner of the Hathaway Creative Center in Waterville is poised to start developing a former mill building in the complex.

Paul Boghossian says his plans for the 53,000-square-foot building, which formerly housed Central Maine Power Co., include developing work spaces for graphic artists, weavers, ceramic artists, glass blowers and others.

He described them as “little work studios clustered around a cooperative gallery.

He tells the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1i0uuOv) the studios and gathering place would take up only part of the first floor in the building.

As part of his plan for the building, Boghossian wants to build “incubator kitchens” to be used by culinary staff and students.

He also wants to build student housing on the second floor and says two colleges are already interested.
