FITCHBURG, MASS. — WinnDevelopment has opened Fitchburg Place, a new 42,528-square-foot affordable seniors housing development in Fitchburg, following a $19 million redevelopment project. The property is located on the site of the former Groop Townview Towers, a public housing complex owned by the Fitchburg Housing Authority. Originally planned to be converted into an assisted living facility, the redevelopment sat idle due to financial trouble. WinnDevelopment acquired the property through a joint venture partnership last October and restructured the stalled project into 96 units for seniors age 62 and older. Fitchburg Place features Energy Star appliances, an upgraded HVAC system and an on-site management and leasing office. Amenities include a resident lounge, laundry facilities, fitness center, library and computer learning space.
