Print Story | Email Story

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The West Side Legends is embarking on a multiphase initiative to "Buy Back our Neighborhood" by redeveloping the neighborhood.

On Saturday, the nonprofit group will celebrate its first development, 28-30 Daniels Ave., with an open house from 1 to 4 p.m.

The event will explain how the development was renovated from a rundown duplex into two modern condominiums.

Each condominium contains two bedrooms, one bathroom, and storage space. There is also room for future expansion on the property.

The initial investors, builders, and prospective owners all have West Side interests.

Partnering organizations include Greylock Federal Credit Union, The Crane Foundation, Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity, Guardian Life, Gray to Green (Berkshire Regional Planning Commission), Berkshire Taconic, Aaron’s, RSI Signs, Berkshire Environment Action Team (BEAT), and Milltown Capital.
