Middleborough, MA The Town of Middleborough has been buzzing about The Woodlands, its newest apartment community. And, to the delight of the development team, leasing and management teams and future residents, move-ins have begun for the first phase. 

Situated on 34 acres, off Rte. 28, The Woodlands is considered one of the region’s larger green-area developments and, certainly the newest to the Southcoast region. This 3-phased development, when complete, will feature 234 apartment homes. Middleborough is under an hour from Boston, Providence and Cape Cod and enjoys the nearby Plymouth waterfront, with its many restaurants, shopping possibilities and recreational activities. The nearby Middleborough/Lakeville commuter rail station gives you direct rail way access into the city and beyond.

And, word about The Woodlands has begun to spread throughout the region as people learn about this new housing opportunity.

Twenty-five percent of the apartment homes are designated for households below 80% of area median income.  Availability is though a lottery process. 

Prospective residents have been watching construction progress very closely and interest has been fabulous, according to Peabody Properties principal and CEO Karen Fish-Will. “The Woodlands is literally built on a foundation of community with so much emphasis placed on adding value to its residents’ lifestyles. The magnificent, 6,000 s/f entertaining clubhouse is perfect for  relaxing, socializing, fitness and, fun and enjoys game lounge with movie theatre, billiards and golf simulation, multi-catering kitchen, children’s play space, 24-hour fitness center, business center with Wi-Fi and package acceptance service. Outdoor amenities include grilling station and fire pit, multipurpose sport court, playground, pool with sundeck and lounge chairs, balcony/patio, individual and bike storage, car charging station, carwash station and fenced pet-park.
