Worcester developer proposes redevelopment of historic Taylor and Farley building

Worcester’s GoVenture Capital Group is proposing to transform the former site of Taylor and Farley Organ Co. at 17 Hermon St. in Worcester’s Main South neighborhood into 36 apartments with 38 parking spaces, according to a public notice from the Worcester Planning Board.

Plans submitted to the City by Worcester architecture firm Benoit Design Group show a small part of the third floor on the east side of the building will be removed, leaving most of the building intact and redeveloped into apartments.

If approved, the development would join several other residential projects nearby, including The Junction Shop Lofts, which opened in 2015; a development on Lagrange Street proposed by Boston-based firms, Civico Development and Rees-Larkin Development; and Boston-based Dalfior Development’s 21-unit residential project under construction in the former Sargent Card building, once home to The Bridge Academy and Community Center.
GoVenture Capital completed The Kiln, a 111-unit residential development in Worcester’s Greendale neighborhood, and has proposed a 364-unit development on Franklin Street in Worcester.

Taylor and Farley operated from 1855 to 1885 in Worcester, building reed organs.
