Northampton Lumberyard Eyed For Affordable Housing

(Northampton, MA) — The former Northampton Lumber yard might be developed as 60 units of affordable housing. The Valley Community Development Corporation recently received a million-dollar loan from the state to help it buy the property on Pleasant Street. The CDC is proposing a four-story building with commercial retail space on the first floor. They haven’t filed any paperwork with the city yet. The downtown lumberyard closed this summer after a 50-year run.
