City Manager Michael V. O’Brien, join Mohsin Amiji, chief
executive officer of the Liberty Companies, senior executives
of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, and dozens of Worcester
community leaders and citizens for a celebratory ribbon cutting
at The Residences at Vernon Hill, a new community of townhomes
situated atop scenic Vernon Hill in Worcester. Located at 30
Rice Lane, The Residences at Vernon Hill is a $10 million, 46-unit
project gracing the property formerly part of the Saint Vincent’s
The ribbon cutting, hosted by the Coldwell Banker Residential
Brokerage New Homes division, and the Liberty Companies, the
development company responsible for The Residences at Vernon
Hill project, is being held to celebrate the official completion
of the model unit.
“The Residences at Vernon Hill is another example of private
industry working in conjunction with local government to revitalize
a neighborhood, reuse land, and bring much needed housing to
the area,” Mayor Murray said. “I am very pleased
to celebrate this achievement with the Worcester community.”
Construction of the first phase of the project began in April
2006 and will be complete by the end of next month. Phase II
of the development will begin next week with completion scheduled
in February. The first phase offers 7 units all with two bedrooms,
2.5 baths, and 1 car garage. Each unit ranges from 1,161 to
1,260 square feet of living space. Presently 3 of the units
have been sold with the remaining being offered in the low $200,000s.
“This creative conversion project is another sign of Worcester’s
emergence as a center of opportunity for homebuyers looking
for value and authenticity in an historic building, proximity
to transportation, be I the MBTA commuter rail to Boston or
the Massachusetts Turnpike just a few miles to the south, and
our city’s high quality of life,” O’Brien
“The Residences at Vernon Hill offer a number of desirable
features at very reasonable prices and presents an excellent
opportunity for a buyer to own a home with the convenience and
affordability of condominium living,” said Cindy Dube,
Marketing Director of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
New Homes division.
The units offer such standard features as granite kitchen countertops,
stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, ceramic tile flooring
in both master and guest bathrooms, and central air conditioning.
Additionally the location of the homes are ideal for commuters
as the project is located minutes from the Mass Pike / Route
146, Route 290, and the MBTA commuter rail.
“With close proximity to Restaurant Row, downtown Worcester,
local colleges including UMASS medical school, and the Shoppes
at Blackstone Valley, we recognize that the homes in this community
are poised to sell very quickly,” continued Dube.
“We have greatly enjoyed working with Mayor Murray and
the Worcester city officials,” said Mohsin Amiji. “They
recognized that this project brings a new community that will
assist the City of Worcester to grow in a viable and conscientious
