Mark Erlich, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the New England Regional Council of Carpenters joined Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Congresswoman Nikki Tsongas and other dignitaries at a ribbon cutting last week for the Appleton Mills project in Lowell. Erlich's comments at the event can be read here.
The project involved the conversion of an old textile mill into 130 units of housing. Space within the units and in common areas was designed to attract artists. The NERCC Communications Department visited the site last summer and produced this video of the project in progress.
Photos of the finished project and the event were posted by MassHousing on flikr.
