    City of Worcester

    “The WBDC has played a key role in the development of Worcester, with a strong focus on rehabilitating contaminated properties and buildings. Out of the numerous projects they have accomplished, a few stand out, helping to establish Worcester as a leader in the biotech and life sciences industries as well as home to world-class performing arts: the development of the Massachusetts Biotechnology Research Park, which is home to many organizations including the University of Massachusetts Medical Center’s research facilities; the development of Gateway Park in partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute; and the restoration of the historic Hanover Theatre.

    The WBDC has been a critically important partner to the city of Worcester on a host of projects that have helped shape the city into what it is today and will set the stage for the next 50 years and more.”
