Courthouse Lofts has officially completed in Worcester, Mass. The project is the certified historic rehabilitation and adaptive re-use of the approximately 214,000-sf Old Worcester County Courthouse, originally built in 1845. Located at 2 Main Street, the redevelopment of the courthouse is part of a larger revitalization of Worcester’s Historic Lincoln Square district.

Courthouse Lofts includes 118 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Amenities include on-site maintenance and management, a media and game room, a club room for remote work and study, a fitness center, a landscaped courtyard, a pet spa, a children’s playroom and outdoor playground, and an on-site maker space.

Each unit also has unique, historic details and features.

The Architectural Team designed the project with Trinity Financial as the developer.
