37 Union Street
Located in Attleboro, MA, 37 Union Street is part of a century-old, multi-building mill complex ideally situated adjacent to an MBTA Commuter Rail station connecting to both Boston and Providence. Davis Square Architects is preparing a master plan and renovation designs for the adaptive reuse of the entire site as a stylish, affordable residential apartment community complete with parking, greenspaces, fitness and community function rooms, and on-site management. 37 Union Street is also known as the Foster Building, once home to a bustling jewelry factory, and lately was part of a high-tech electronics manufacturing company. Parts of the complex are listed on the Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service, so the project is subject to rigorous restoration standards.
The first phase will provide 59 apartments at 37 Union Street, with the total count for the entire complex expected to reach 110 units. Built over time as four contiguous masonry buildings, the structure is being carefully restored with replica windows and modern conveniences, including all-electric systems. The project plays an important role in the revitalization of downtown Attleboro, and will provide high-quality affordable and workforce housing to residents and families.
