What I Like About This Home: “A perennial favorite on TWiW’s Open House segment. I feature these lofts because of the flair and quality they bring to downtown living.
The Canal Lofts is the embodiment of a great c.1890 factory building reimagined in Worcester. Sited in a prime downtown location with highway access, restaurants nearby (Queens Cups, Lock50, Bocado, etc.) and close to Shrewsbury Street you get ‘real City Living at its finest.’ The building is LEED certified for energy efficiency.
