The Brass Mill Center is a shopping mall located in Waterbury, Connecticut. The mall and its accompanying complex, the Brass Mill Commons, cover 1.1-million-square-feet and cost $160 million to build. It is located off Interstate 84 in Waterbury, Connecticut. The mall's slogan is "Mix it Up!" which is one of the major slogans used by the mall's owner, General Growth Properties.
The Brass Mill Center opened in 1997. It comprises two floors, as well as a partial third floor belonging to a 12-screen movie theater. There are approximately 150 shops and eateries in the mall, as well as four anchor stores, including: Macy's, JCPenney, Burlington Coat Factory, and Sears.
The mall was constructed on the old site of the Scovill Brass Works, which is from where the name 'Brass Mill Center' is derived. Before construction began, 118,000 tons of contaminated soil and 63 vacant and deteriorated buildings were removed from the site. The construction of Brass Mill Center essentially replaced the older Naugatuck Valley Mall, built in 1969 and located on the city's northeast suburban side. In the process, the Filene's (originally a G. Fox & Co. store) and the Sears stores relocated to Brass Mill Center. Naugautuck Valley Mall was demolished in 2000.
