On the Foundation of an Industrial Past

Our 2020 Vision: The year Amherst is named by all national magazines as the Best College Town on the planet, and The Mill District will be a big reason why.

Seeking development partners and tenants for 20+ acres of land in the Historic Center of North Amherst, MA.

Serving as the gateway to the hill towns, North Amherst is just 1/2 mile north of UMass.  With a traffic count of 25,000 vehicles per day within a 2-block radius, this historic town center is ripe for revitalization and growth.
