Courthouse Lofts is one of the most extraordinary adaptive reuse projects. The aim of this undertaking is to restore and combine multiple historic structures from different centuries into a single community, where the best of modern living with monumental and exquisitely detailed historic architecture exist.

State Street and Trinity Financial, the City of Worcester, Massachusetts Housing Investment Corporation, MassHousing, DHCD, and the Massachusetts Historical Commission.
To create a building called Courthouse Lofts with 118 new units of housing in studio, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom configurations on a 214,000 square foot Old Worcester County Courthouse. Nearby a 1,700 square foot museum dedicated to Major Taylor that highlights vintage photographs, memorabilia, and an active cycling experience portraying the life of the “Worcester Whirlwind.”
The community and resident amenities at Courthouse Lofts include on-site maintenance and management, a media and game room, club room ideal for remote work and study, fitness center, beautifully landscaped courtyard, a pet spa, children’s playroom and outdoor playground, and on-site makerspace.
This project is a huge part of the revitalization of the Lincoln Square area of Worcester. It accomplishes so much in one fell swoop by providing a wide variety of housing options for people from different city sectors while also affording the general public the chance to learn about one of Worcester’s most influential residents. The Courthouse Lofts has been in the works for more than a decade and has it all: historic preservation, affordable housing, and the adaptive reuse of a truly beautiful building.
