Project Description

Colantonio converted a 109,000 square foot, 19th century manufacturing plant on the Nashua River into this center for business and industry.

The structure required selective demolition, extensive environmental remediation, the installation of a new HVAC system, and the addition of new, 2-story glass foyers.  Colantonio also converted an additional 15,000 square feet of space to house the Worcester County Registry of Deeds within a tight, three-month schedule.

The building, which now houses multi-tenant business and retail space,  is an integral part of the revitalization of downtown Fitchburg.  The Massachusetts Historical Commission designated Putnam Place as a site of historical significance undergoing adaptive reuse.
