Mill Building Slated For Affordable Housing

(Easthampton, MA) — The old Easthampton Dye Works building in Easthampton will soon be turned in 50 units of affordable housing. Arch Street Development of Boston purchased the building on Cottage Street last week after lining up tax credits and housing subsidies. Developer Colin O’Keeffe hopes to start construction in January. Five of the units will be set aside for those with very low incomes.
