48 SMART RESIDENCES

Smart. Fast. Secure.

Green living, placemaking and technology are at the heart of Kelley Square Lofts.

Inspired by the Kelley Square neighborhood, the lofts reflect the surrounding urban intensity; yet they create a protected community environment where residents can escape the outside hustle and bustle and get to know their neighbors. 

The building features 48 apartment units in a unique location directly above the new Worcester Public Market in the Worcester’s Canal District. Our high ceilings with exposed metal decking give the spaces a big city vibe, and the apartments surround a shared indoor/outdoor community space. The building includes a bicycle storage room, a mail and package center, a laundry and fitness room, and smart features such as keyless entry, intercom systems, key card parking and our incomparable GigXero unlimited gigabit service — a fast, secure, privacy-centric and reliable internet platform.

Our sense of place reflects our historical and experiential knowledge of a location, and it connects deeply to our health. Kelley Square Lofts draw upon the richness of the surrounding neighborhood to create a unique environment in which to live, work and play. Kelley Square itself was the inspiration behind this project; and like the legendary intersection, we invite you to live dangerously.

life in the CANAL DISTRICT

Let’s face it, our neighborhood rocks. It has everything. It is walkable; it is social; it is full of amazing people.

Our city is already pretty great as far as lifestyle goes, but we wanted to embrace the walkability and community of our neighborhood and to build a residence that resonated with the influx of young professionals coming to Worcester for their education and careers. The team behind KSL knows what living in Kelley Square is like, because they hang out there too. 

Worcester is a city of immigrants, many of whom first set foot in the Canal District, and the neighborhood still reflects this history. From a Jewish delicatessen, to a Middle Eastern hookah lounge, to a family-owned Mexican restaurant, to the Greek-owned Table Talk Pie Company – “America’s favorite pie!” – the collection of small businesses gracing its sidewalks creates a global tapestry that continues to be woven today. Worcester is re-embracing this aspect of the district, creating rich environment that reflects its roots and casts an eye to its future.

WORCESTER: WE LOVE OUR EDGE AND GRIT

Revolutions are familiar here in Worcester; actually, they’re our thing. Since colonial days, our little metropolis has been a center of innovation and education. We love our colorful history and take pride in our innovative past. Yes, we have a past! We embrace everything that makes our community vibrant—all the inventions of our disruptors and all their fantastic firsts, like the first reading of the Declaration of Independence, the first liquid fuel rocket and professional baseball’s first perfect game. The valentine was invented here, and the lunch car diner; the monkey wrench, candlepin bowling, and barbed wire.

With over ten world-class colleges and universities, we are a magnet for strategists, a center for the arts, technology, engineering, robotics, aerospace, medicine and science. Our talented people are putting this historic city back on the map. Newcomers, if they take the time to look, can’t help but be impressed by life in the heart of the Commonwealth; and we are proud that many of them have become our biggest cheerleaders! The presence of so many elite educational opportunities in Worcester indicate that our workforce is highly skilled and well-trained. The education and expertise of Worcester's workforce has been on the radar of businesses in the fields of health, tech, pharma, biomed, robotics, manufacturing and other professional services.

Worcester’s major developments in downtown, in biotech, high tech, cyber security and the gaming industries and in manufacturing emphasize the city’s areas of newest growth. Emerging industries like as fiber optics, electronics, and advanced ceramics are growing as well. 

And the secret, really, lies in our incredible mix of people. Like an old New England factory itself, Worcester doesn’t put on airs and pretend to be something better.  Worcester is proud of it’s blue collar roots and accentuates them with it’s earned culture and history.   

“By its nature, the metropolis provides what otherwise could be given only by traveling; namely, the strange[rs].”
