The Torrey Factory Lofts on Chandler Street in Worcester will officially open on Wednesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony planned in the afternoon.
The latest complex adds to the new housing near downtown Worcester. Late last month, the Courthouse Lofts, located just more than a mile away from the Torrey Factory Lofts, officially debuted on Main Street.
Like the Courthouse Lofts and Chatham Lofts, the Torrey Factory Lofts embody the history of the building.
The building at 128 Chandler St. was built in 1883 by J. R. Torrey Razor Co. In 1945, the Torrey Company sold the building to the Bigelow Electric Company.
In 2019, developers purchased the building and began building loft-style apartments.
The floor plans include studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. According to the website, only studio apartments remain. The rate for the 400-square-foot studio is $1,150 for a 12-month lease.
The apartments are market-rate and workforce-rate housing.
The units include granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, central air conditioning, an integrated security system, internet and cable. Some rooms were available fully furnished.
The development was awarded state and federal tax credits for restoring and preserving the historic architectural elements and character of the building.
