PITTSFIELD >> Carmella Scelsi hopes to find the new Berkshire Place as welcoming as the century-old one she's called home the past four years.
On Wednesday, Scesli will be among the dozens of current long-term residents moving from the original skilled nursing facility at 89 South St. to the more spacious, state-of-the art, $10 million complex a half mile away at 260 South St.
The project's general contractor, Allegrone Construction Co. of Pittsfield, employed a number of local subcontractors, putting 100 skilled laborers to work. Project superintendent Rob Rosier, who led the tour, said the goal was to ensure Berkshire Place belonged in its new neighborhood.
"The building was designed to fit well with the contour of the land," he said.

Plans to renovate the Stockbridge Library are moving ahead now that Allegrone Construction Co. of Pittsfield has been awarded a $2.5 million contract for the project. (Ben Garver — The Berkshire Eagle)
The first major renovation of the historic Stockbridge Library, Museum and Archives since 1937 is moving ahead, now that Allegrone Construction Co. of Pittsfield has been awarded the $2.5 million contract for the project.
"Work is officially under way," said library director Katie O'Neil. A capital campaign for the massive reconstruction has raised more than half of its $3.2 million goal, she told The Eagle.
The library, which celebrated its 150th anniversary in August, is awaiting a decision from the state on its application for historic renovation tax credits, which could yield as much as $500,000 for qualified restoration expenses. The private fundraising campaign was led by a $250,000 gift from the Jack and Jane Fitzpatrick Trust.
Allegrone, with a long history of historic site renovations such as the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, was awarded the contract as the low bidder for the project, which was designed by Centerline Architects & Planners of Bennington, Vt.

Allegrone Masonry raises and lays the 1,516th and final stone into place at the historic Berkshire Athenaeum building in Pittsfield's Park Squre.
Scaffolding has concealed the exterior of the Berkshire Athenaeum building for several months as Allegrone Masonry has worked carefully and diligently to repair the deteriorated stone facade. The existing stone wall was labelled, inventoried, disassembled, and reinstalled from July 15, 2014 through October 25, 2014. In this time, Allegrone Masonry laid 1,516 stones and placed by hand 123 yards of vertical, one sided, structurally reinforced concrete.
Scaffolding will be removed this week, returning the historic building as a focal point of Park Square! Work will continue elsewhere within the building through Spring 2015.
The new 43,000 sf, 54 bed home for the established long term nursing care facility nears its highly anticipated completion within two weeks!
