Lowell, MA – MassDevelopment has participated with Washington Savings Bank to provide a $3,062,700 loan to Residence at Mill Square LLC, an affiliate of Degmar Development Corp. Degmar used proceeds to buy a parcel at 27 West Third St. in Lowell, on which it is building a 21-unit affordable rental housing facility to be called Residence at Mill Square.

MassDevelopment also enhanced the bank portion of the loan with a mortgage insurance guarantee.

Degmar Development Corp. is a Lowell-based development company owned by David Degan and Peter Marlowe. A separate company also managed by Degan and Marlowe, Marlowe Building & Design, is completing construction of Residence at Mill Square. Degan’s brother, Dennis Degan, is overseeing the day-to-day operations of the project, including supervising plumbers, electricians, HVAC and drywall installation, etc.
