Located in historic downtown New Bedford, with striking panoramic views of the harbor, The Regency represents the remarkable impact that public-private partnerships have on revitalizing a community. Funded by federal and state agencies and private institutions, the $32.4 million renovation of the 15-story apartment building transformed it from a deteriorating liability into a prominent 129 unit mixed-income residential asset. Helping to promote quality of life in New Bedford and attract new residents to the area, the redevelopment fosters a vibrant new sense of community by providing much needed affordable mixed-income housing. The firm’s renovations consisted of a nearly complete replacement of the façade, roof, and HVAC systems, and the conversion of under-utilized commercial space into new penthouse apartments. Additionally, the firm’s interior design studio designed and furnished common areas including the main entry lobby, management office suite, common corridors and elevator lobbies; and new community spaces to include a resident lounge, billiard and media room. Renovations also included refurbishing apartment interiors with new appliances and finishes.
