Our Neighborhoods

The Bell Hill Opportunity Fund invests in small multifamily in two urban pocket neighborhoods.

Stanton Loop

Stanton Loop is a half-mile loop across from Bell Pond. There are 57 residential buildings and ten unimproved lots in the pocket neighborhood.

We invest in clusters to create a consistent community experience for residents, while improving neighborhood quality and stability. Acquiring neighboring properties enables new pedestrian linkages, more parking, and opportunities to develop pocket parks or community gardens. We hypothesize that clustering properties will have substantial positive impacts on property valuations, appreciation rate, and occupancy.

Shrewsbury Heights

Shrewsbury Heights is a dense urban district that overlooks the popular Shrewsbury Street corridor and downtown Worcester. Famous for its Restaurant Row, the 1.5 miles of Shrewsbury Street feature four-star restaurants and historic diners, a park and outdoor music venue, and the Union Station transit hub.

Shrewsbury Heights is the most walkable neighborhood in the City. The urban vibe, exceptional access to area amenities and transit, and allure of Shrewsbury Street make this neighborhood one of the most untapped districts in Worcester.
