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.”
