North Square at the Mill District is under construction! This mixed-use, mixed-income community will bring 130 new apartments, up to 10 new storefronts, a new children’s playground, and a new “town square” gathering spot for North Amherst.


Located three miles north of downtown Amherst, North Square at The Mill District will be a sustainably designed, mixed-use and mixed-income community that creates new housing and resident amenities, business opportunities, jobs, and tax revenue for the community. The developer, Beacon Communities, took its inspiration for North Square from the Town’s Master Plan, Housing Production Plan North Square, and conversations with community members.

This vision will bring significant benefits to this currently inactive site. In addition, the proposed retail uses, village green and playground will bring new energy to the neighborhood, creating an inviting pedestrian experience for Amherst residents and visitors. The first building will be ready for residents and commercial tenants in summer 2019. For leasing information, click here.


With the thoughtful planning and the design expertise of Prellwitz Chilinski Associates, two new buildings will be constructed around a vibrant, new public square including 130 new apartments, 22,000 sf of 1st floor retail, parking, open space and a playground that will activate the currently dormant site, transforming it into an attractive town square. The development will pursue LEED certification, and its design and construction will follow green design and healthy home principles.
