Coming to New Bedford soon: 15 apartment units currently under construction
Mayor Jon Mitchell announced on social media Monday afternoon that there are 15 apartment units under construction at the old “Holy Family High School” in New Bedford. He noted that this is another part of “the city’s efforts to create new housing for our residents”.
The building is a former Catholic high school that has been closed for more than 30 years, and is located in the city’s West End, just up the hill from downtown New Bedford.

According to the developers, “this project will be one of the first affordable historic renovation projects in the city in over a decade, and will turn a blighted, boarded up property into a valuable community asset.”
The project will house 15 units, five of which being “restricted income” housing. Of the 15 units, there will be 4 studio apartments and 11 one bedroom apartments.
Mayor Mitchell toured the facility and pointed out the natural light and beautiful views the property will be offering. He believes, “this is a property that people will have a tremendous amount of interest in.”
This project is one of several newly constructed apartments as of late as demand for housing seems to be rising in the New Bedford area.
