MassHousing Provides $5.1M in Financing for Redevelopment of Central Building in Worcester

WORCESTER, MASS. — MassHousing has provided $5.1 million in affordable housing financing to support the redevelopment of Worcester’s Central Building. The financing will allow the borrower, Central Building Development Group, to transform a vacant office building into a 55-unit, mixed-income housing community with 14 workforce-housing units. Dellbrook JKS is serving as general contractor on the project with The Architectural Team serving as architect. MassHousing provided a $3.7 million permanent loan and $1.4 million in workforce housing funding from the agency’s $100 million workforce housing initiative. The project also received $12 million through an allocation of federal and state low-income housing tax credits by the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development.

The property, which is located at 332 Main St., was built in 1925 as an office building and has been vacant for several years. Of the 55 units in the building, 50 will be allocated to lower-income households.
