Worcester, MA – Sustainable Comfort, Inc. (SCI) announced that its Stanton Loop Neighborhood Revitalization Project in the Bell Hill area of Worcester will expand onto Vinson Street, that runs perpendicular to Stanton Street and is part of the community “loop” that SCI is working to achieve.

The Stanton Loop Revitalization Project started in 2016 as a collaboration between SCI, Civico Development, and WalkerThomas, with SCI acting as the general contractor.

The initiative began as an effort to preserve Worcester’s historic triple-decker neighborhoods, built at the turn of the 20th century. While these three-story apartments no longer house the working-class families of New England’s Industrial Revolution, Stanton Loop hopes to give more people a healthy place to call home in Worcester.

The Stanton Loop Revitalization Project has recently purchased two Vinson Street triple-decker properties. 19 Vinson St. is still in decent shape and does not need much repair, other than a few cosmetic improvements.

26 Vinson St.  is getting a rehab.  It offers an open concept kitchen and living space suited to today’s lifestyles. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms on each floor allow for easy shared-housing living that many local graduate students may find attractive. New porches have been added to the front of the building on each floor to replace the ones that were torn down years ago.

True to its intentions of creating healthy housing, SCI will be adding fire-blocking and other safety measures . In addition to safety upgrades, 26 Vinson St. will feature low-flow water fixtures, high-efficiency heating, cooling, and domestic hot water equipment, new windows, and air sealing so that moisture, pests, and energy are not exchanged between apartments.

“We are excited to expand the Stanton Loop Revitalization Project onto Vinson Street,” said Albert LaValley, president of Sustainable Comfort, Inc. “Vinson is a major street in the Stanton Loop Neighborhood. As we work hard to help create a neighborhood vibe reminiscent of the original builders’ intentions for these triple-deckers, it only makes sense that we expand our efforts onto Vinson Street to truly impact the entire Stanton Loop community,” added LaValley.
