Berkshire Place

Pouring the foundation.

The new future home for Gracious Retirement Living & Healthcare Services.

Exciting things have begun over at 270 South Main Street in Pittsfield. A vast clearing has been created and a strong foundation has been started. This centrally located site will be the new home of Berkshire Place’s newest facility, a much welcome addition to aid in the growing need for senior living. This facility will be centered on skilled nursing and superior health-care, while in a warm home-like environment.

Allegrone is the Construction Manager and builder for the new complex, which includes a three-story building with two houses of 13 units and two houses of 14 units, offering a total of 54 beds. There will also be a community room, small commercial kitchens, dining and living rooms, two elevators, associated support spaces, gardens, parking and landscaping. The new Berkshire Place is being built with sustainability and green architecture in mind and will meet all the requirements of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

A Medicare rated 5 stars, Berkshire Place has been around since 1888 and for the last 125 years they have been creating a haven for the elderly community in Pittsfield and the surrounding areas. This dedication to excellence will ensure that the new facility will be a great addition, offering a high-level of care in a wonderful and nurturing environment. www.berkshireplace.com

89 South Senior Living Community Pittsfield, MA.

Originally built in 1888 as the Berkshire County Home for Aged Women, the design entailed restoring and replicating prominent historic details, which pay homage to the Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, while incorporating a new transitional style that boasts the comforts of multifamily living in the modern age.  The program houses 18 residential units along with shared amenities including dining cafe, reading and fitness and educational uses.

We are all MAKERS with the power to build resilient communities.

Our team had a wonderful time participating in Yo-Yo Ma’s “Day of Action”, where teams of local businesses and organizations united under a single tent to build tables for the community.  The tables are made from local ash trees and inscribed with local responses that complete the phrase “The Berkshires make...”. #yoyoma #dayofaction #community #intheberkshires
