Development Opportunities

The Mill District, North Amherst

We are excited about opportunities in Amherst and seeking development partners and tenants for 20+ acres of land at the northern boundary of Amherst. Serving as the gateway to the hill towns, North Amherst is just one mile north of the UMass campus. With a traffic count of 25,000 vehicles per day within a two block radius, this historic town center is ripe for revitalization and growth. Check out The Mill District, North Amherst website to see our current tenants and available lease details! Learn more about why we are excited about North Amherst.
