In an undertaking that began last fall, 575 Amherst St., a 51,885 s/f former manufacturing facility for NimCor (1980 -2013), will be redeveloped as Bridges by EPOCH at Nashuaâ€”a 54-bed Assisted Living Memory Care community that will open in the Fall of 2016. Solely and uniquely dedicated to those suffering from Alzheimer's disease and memory loss, Bridges by EPOCH was designed to meet the growing demand for specialized memory care housing and services for those living with dementia-related diseases, via seamless integration of the latest technologies and research within a homelike setting.
National Development and Epoch Senior Living - two of the most-well respected operators of senior housing and skilled nursing residences - have partnered to develop and operate more than 35 senior housing communities throughout New England.
"575 Amherst Street represents prime real estate just off Nashua's coveted commercial hub, Amherst Street/Route 101A," said Farrelly. "It offers an excellent opportunity for repositioning into an assisted living/memory care facility, where it will benefit from its superior accessibility, located at a heavily-traveled, lighted intersection with signage opportunities."
The property's location offers significant visibility and a strong presence among a densely-populated region. A wealth of retail amenities, including shopping and dining destinations, surround the property.
