Easthampton Mill Project Moves Forward

Big changes are afoot in Easthampton.  A plan to link three mill buildings on Pleasant Street and flip their entrance ways to the back is ready to move forward.  Owners of the Eastworks, the Brickyard and 180 Pleasant are close to signing an easement agreement with the city that will let important infrastructure upgrades go out to bid.  The project promises to bring new housing, restaurants, shops and work studios to a refurbished complex directly on the bike path.
