On Thursday October 31, representatives of Berkshire Place and general contractor Allegrone Construction, gathered together with city and state officials, under a small tent to participate in the official ground breaking of the new Berkshire Place.

The new facility is already in the process of being built. It is on a 3.51-acre building lot, located at 290 South St. in Pittfield, MA. The new building is going to become a 54-bed, $10 million facility with a focus on skilled nursing and rehabilitation, long-term care, residential care and respite care services.

“Berkshire Place expects to create 18 jobs as a result of the project, along with 75 construction jobs, according to MassDevelopment calculations, the state agency said in a press release. NBT Bank, Adams Community Bank and Glens Falls National Bank purchased the bond. The bond was enhanced by a MassDevelopment guarantee.

The 44,000-square-foot residential facility will replace the existing Berkshire Place at 89 South St., which was built in 1888 as a retirement home for women. Berkshire Place, first known as the Berkshire County Home for Aged Women, was established in accordance with the wishes of Zenas Marshall Crane of Crane & Co. in Dalton. The home adopted the name Berkshire Place in 1960.”

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
