What was once the Worcester Boys’ Trade School has been adapted into a unique affordable housing facility. As noted in a profile by Affordable Housing Finance, a sister publication to Masonry Construction, the $2 million Voke Lofts project includes more than 80 separate apartments.
"At Voke Lofts, the team retained and refurbished the exterior to resemble the original building. It also reused the existing structure, floor deck, and masonry walls. In addition, brick walls along with wood and steel columns were left exposed in the apartments and common areas," the article reports.
