WinnDevelopment marks the opening of Fitchburg Place

WinnDevelopment announced the official opening this week of Fitchburg Place, a senior housing development in Fitchburg with 96 one-bedroom rental apartments.

All the apartments have been designated as affordable, mixed-income units, and they will benefit from operating and rental subsidies provided by the US Department of Housing & Urban Development, said WinnDevelopment, the real estate development arm of WinnCompanies. Winn Development is headquartered in Boston.

What is now Fitchburg Place was formerly known as Groop Townview Towers, a public housing complex owned by the Fitchburg Housing Authority.

Fitchburg Place amenities include a resident lounge, laundry facilities, a wellness room, fitness center, computer learning space, library, and patio area.

WinnDevelopment said it expects for the building to be fully leased by end of year.
