NORTHAMPTON — Situated on the site that was once home to Shaw’s Motel, a new 12-unit luxury condominium complex called Pomeroy Place is seeking its first tenants.

The complex has four buildings ranging in size from 1,800 to 3,500 square feet, featuring eight two-bedroom condos and four custom spaces, along with a garage and an elevator. Listed by Goggins Real Estate, the units will be sold at market price and are located at the corner of Bridge Street and Pomeroy Terrace at the gateway to the city’s downtown. Currently, only two of the two-bedroom units are up for sale; prices for those units are expected to range from $349,000 to $499,000.

Developer Todd Marchefka said the new space fills a gap for people who are looking for a small community of residents in a complex that is walking distance to downtown.

“When people look at moving to Northampton, they don’t have a lot of choices to move to the downtown area because there aren’t a lot of projects like this on the market right now,” Marchefka said. “For a lot of people who want to move and live in Northampton, they now have the option to live close to downtown.”

The eight two-bedroom units in two buildings, Marchefka said, with the four custom units in the other two buildings. As of now, those custom units are not priced because custom design plans will depend on the buyers.

Marchefka said each unit has its own outdoor space, a private deck and parking. Tenants will also have access to bike racks.

“It’s accessible to the highway and the bike paths and all of the wonderful things Northampton has to offer,” Marchefka said.

Inside, Marchefka said, the units are “very well laid out” with lots of natural light. The new spaces include hardwood floors, quartz countertops and other natural finishes, he said.

According to Marchefka, construction on the new complex has been ongoing for two or three years.

The site is the former home of Shaw’s Motel, built in the 1800s, which was turned into a motel for the city’s mentally ill by Donald and Josephine Shaw in 1951. The building was condemned in 2012 and razed in 2016. Other homes and structures at the site were either demolished or renovated.

The new complex is located in the Pomeroy Terrace Historic District, which was placed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2018 in part for its 19th-century architecture.
