"Congratulations to all those who had a part in saving this historic building, renovating it into what will be a safe haven for older citizens who need comfort, and a place to live." - Mayor Linda Tyer

Earlier this week we celebrated the completion of Berkshire Place’s new independent living community, known as 89 South. Among the 50 who attended were Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer and representatives from state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier and state Sen. Adams Hinds' offices.

Allegrone Companies provided design-build services for the three-story, Richardsonian Romanesque building located in the heart of Pittsfield. The building was constructed in 1888 as the Berkshire County Home for Aged Women, and later became Berkshire Place in the 1960s. The new space houses 18 living units, primarily one- and two-bedroom setups, all of which express the 21st century historic character and new-age transitional design while offering the latest technologies.

We are all MAKERS with the power to build resilient communities.

Our team had a wonderful time participating in Yo-Yo Ma’s “Day of Action”, where teams of local businesses and organizations united under a single tent to build tables for the community.  The tables are made from local ash trees and inscribed with local responses that complete the phrase “The Berkshires make...”. #yoyoma #dayofaction #community #intheberkshires
