Location<br>25 West Chester Street, Worcester, MA <br><br>Sale<br>On behalf of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Worcester, Kelleher & Sadowsky Associates, Inc. is pleased to introduce 25 West Chester Street in Worcester. The 52, 936 +- square foot, three-story building was constructed in 1960 and is currently occupied by the Mercy Center, who has plans to relocate to West Boylston in 2024:

About the Mercy Centre:

The Mercy Centre is a program of Catholic Charities located in Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy and Catholic Charities in the 1960s, the program serves over one hundred adults with developmental disabilities, ages eighteen and over, in four different programs from the Worcester County extended area. The Adult Services programs have been in existence for more than fifty years.

The Mercy Centre’s programmatic services are tailored to meet individualized needs and preferences. The emphasis is placed on enriching lives through employment, training, skill building, and a full range of activities. Each program fosters growth in building self-esteem, independence, communication skills, and encourages interactions with peers and community members.

The goal for Mercy Centre and for the people it serves is independence realized through meaningful employment and opportunities for people to enrich their lives by developing personal skills, participating in a full range of community activities, and developing a network of caring relationships. Supports are based on individual preferences and needs, with an emphasis on self-determination and individual control.

About the Property:

The property has been most recently used for educational purposes, operating at the Mercy Centre, with many classrooms and support areas, as well as a gymnasium, full-service kitchen and auditorium. The building has elevator access to all three-floors of the building and could be redeveloped for a similar education related use. Please note that if the property is redeveloped, significant building upgrades will be required to meet current building standard requirements, fire and life safety requirements, as well as ADA compliance requirements:

Current Zoning & Allowed Uses:

The property is currently zoned RS-7 by the City of Worcester. Allowed uses “by right” include the following:

• Group residence
• Family day care home
• Day care center
• Place of worship
• Religious or educational uses
• Schools (colleges and/or universities)
• Single-family, detached dwelling
• Single-family, semi-detached dwelling

Should a rezoning be granted by the City of Worcester to increase development potential either by “spot zoning” or “special permit” (ideally to RL-7 or RG-5), the site may potentially accommodate more dense development opportunities such as:

• Multi-family dwelling (low-rise and high-rise)
• Single-family attached dwellings
• Two-family and three-family development
