Curtis Apartments, a 372-unit complex located on Great Brook Valley Avenue in Worcester, will undergo a $178-million redevelopment and add 100 additional units, the Worcester Housing Authority announced on Saturday.

The development project will be managed by Trinity Financial, an urban real estate developer based in Boston which developed the Courthouse Lofts in Worcester,.

Located along Great Brook Valley Avenue, the Curtis Apartments were built in 1951. Trinity will redevelop at least 193 of the existing apartments and construct 100 new ones. 

The complex offers one-, two-, and three-bedroom conventional and accessible family housing, as well as on-site child daycare, youth recreational programming, and a Worcester Public Library branch site, according to the WHA website.

“We are thrilled to have an opportunity to redevelopment (sic) Curtis Apartments. It is long overdue,” said Alex Corrales, CEO of the WHA, in the press release. “This is not just an opportunity to provide our current residents better housing, but also allows us to create new apartments in our efforts to address the affordable housing needs of the city.”

In November, the WHA received a $1-million grant from the state’s MassWorks Infrastructure program to fund the installation of a perimeter fence and lead to the construction of 18 new units at Curtis Apartments. 

The WHA is now working with Trinity Financial to complete a funding application, which is due to the state on March 1 and will be announced in the summer.
