Framingham, MA New England construction management firm Dellbrook|JKS has completed The Bancroft at 59 Fountain St. alongside KPD Advisors and Bargmann Hendrie + Archetype, Inc.

The 150,000 s/f Bancroft Building is an adaptive re-use renovation of a historic mill building making room for 160 residential units.

As well as the new construction of a 172,018 s/f, four-story-wood framed building over two levels of steel podium for an additional 96 units and a 224-space parking garage.

“We are really pleased with the finished result of Bancroft Lofts. It’s a gorgeous development that the project team can be proud of. With a new six-story structure alongside two adaptively re-used buildings that are a seven-minute walk to the commuter rail, it should be a great addition to the area.” said Eric Tanery, Dellbrook|JKS project manager.
