Baker at groundbreaking for new Amherst apartment complex

AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) - Massachusetts' top leader showed his support for a new mixed-use housing development in Amherst. Governor Charlie Baker was in attendance Thursday afternoon for the groundbreaking ceremony for North Square at the Mill District.

The complex, located on Cowls Road, will not only be providing 130 new apartments, retail space, and access to restaurants, it's also boosting the local economy by providing jobs.

Twenty six of the 130 apartments will be designated for families that make less than 50% of the median income.

The community will also be pet-friendly and convenient- being located less than a mile away from UMass Amherst.
