Harbor Village, Gloucester’s new affordable apartment community, officially opened it’s doors with a small ribbon cutting ceremony July 22, 2021. The mixed-use building at 206 Main Street provides homes for 30 individuals and families, as well as programming and commercial space on the ground level. It’s also one of the most energy-efficient buildings on Cape Ann and was designed using Passive House principles.
Due to health concerns related to the pandemic, the ribbon cutting was scaled back and a larger celebration was unable to happen. We hope this video will help our friends and community share in the excitement and pride of the day!
A huge thank you goes out to the development team and funders who created Harbor Village. Development Team: Action Inc., North Shore Community Development Coalition, Community Square Associates, Groom Construction, Hackett Feinberg, ICON Architecture, and Jonathan Lavash Project Management. Funders: Boston Financial, CEDAC, City of Gloucester – Gloucester Affordable Housing Trust & Gloucester Community Preservation Fund, Department of Housing & Community Development, Dorfman Capital, Eastern Bank, MassDevelopment, MassCEC, MassHousing, MHP, and the North Shore HOME Consortium.
