Portside offers 30 studio and 1-bedroom apartments perfect for the young professional wanting to be across the street from Bancroft’s amenities. This quieter, renovated living option is just steps to amenities and parking within the heart of The Grid District.

 

 

portland

Embracing a more industrial feel, Portland on the Grid’s 80 units offer a range of studio, one, and two bedroom options with loft features. Most lofts offer granite countertops and newly renovated features as well as an attached parking garage.

 

 

parkplaza

Park Plaza comprises 90 units in 11 stories overlooking the Worcester Commons primly located at Main and Franklin. The units will undergo renovations in 2016 turning this historic building into one of the best places to live in downtown Worcester.

franklin

This quant 15-unit building sits at the corner of Franklin and Portland just steps from all the action. The beautiful historic building will be restored over the next 12-months and embody quiet, classic design for those seeking a higher-end option in The Grid District.

 

houghton

HOUGHTON ON THE GRID will be the second building available in The Grid District for master lease to a local college or university. MG2’s renovation will marry the historic exterior of The Houghton Building with modern interiors, resulting in a much sought after living experience for those students in search of something more than standard student housing. A host of amenities such as a 24 hour gym, concierge / security and study area will ensure that all the residents’ housing needs are satisfied.

bancroft

Once a historic hotel, Bancroft on the Grid has been transformed into a 255-unit residence overlooking Worcester Commons. Soon it will serve as The Grid District’s hub with a new lobby, gym, and other amenities to gather, work and play.

paris

Later in 2016, the site of the once iconic Paris Cinema will be cleared to make way for a custom built pop up café and outdoor coffee garden. This temporary retail space and urban plaza will activate currently underutilized space and bring a new street experience to this area of Franklin Street.

 

becker

Overlooking Worcester Common, this mixed use building is home to 40 residential units all of which are leased to the prestigious Becker College. As part of The Grid’s exterior curb appeal program, this building will undergo a significant transformation through a mix of signage, planting and lighting improvements bringing the historic architecture to the forefront.
