Tocci Selected as Builder for Worcester Courthouse Redevelopment
Tocci Building Corporation has been named Construction Manager for the historic restoration of the former Worcester County Courthouse in Worcester, MA. Tocci is joining Trinity Financial and The Architectural Team, Inc. (TAT) to deliver this multi-family, residential, preservation, and adaptive reuse effort. The 202,000 square-foot building will be converted into 117 market-rate and affordable apartment units. The amenities will premier a museum dedicated to “American bicycle racer Marshall Walter "Major" Taylor (1878-1932), the world’s first African-American sports-superstar, who became known as “the Worcester Whirlwind” after his adopted hometown.” (Major Taylor Association, Inc.) Additionally, the historic courtrooms in both the majestic 1800s building and 1955 mid-century modern Annex will be restored to their previous grandeur and used for apartments and amenity space. The courthouse has been vacant since 2007 awaiting this transformation.
Cooperation between the City of Worcester and Trinity Financial has been impressive, as the City helped the development process with their abatement and building stabilization efforts. The construction team is excited about bringing an A+ work/live/play environment to this vibrant city with the support of local, minority and female labor. All in all, this project is a powerful example of Public-Private partnership.
This pivotal urban site is ideally nestled between Main Street, Highland St., Harvard St., Court St. and in close walking distance to Downtown Worcester and the campus of Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The historic restoration scope of work includes masonry restoration on the exterior façade as well as historic plaster restoration, millwork restoration, and window replication. The grounds surrounding the Courthouse will be restored and will feature tenant gathering spaces, green-life, trees, and re-imagined parking. The interior space will be transformed as three enormous courtyards (one is 74’ x 20’) spanning multiple floor levels, will bring natural light throughout the interior of the building and to adjacent apartments.
“It is an honor to work on a project of this scale, imagination and potential civic impact. The City has rightfully long-awaited the right team to take on the challenge of transforming a gorgeous and iconic building in the heart of their city. Trinity Financial, TAT, and Tocci is that right team. This promises to be another key piece in the on-going transformation of the City of Worcester. Tocci is proud to be a part of this effort.” -- Valentino Tocci
