Back to Development

Former Wilson’s, Greenfield

The former Wilson’s Department Store was originally constructed in downtown Greenfield in 1882. The store shut down operations in 2019 and the prominent property sat vacant in the center of downtown. In 2022, MassDevelopment acquired the former Wilson’s Department Store in Greenfield, in partnership with The Community Builders, Franklin Community Co-op, and the City of Greenfield to facilitate its redevelopment into 65 units of mixed-income housing with a full-service grocery store on the ground floor. In addition to the housing units, the project is anticipated to create approximately 100 jobs. The redevelopment of the property will help revitalize the area and create a vibrant, walkable downtown.
