Featuring a mix of retail, restaurants, government offices, academic institutions, social services, office space, and housing, Fitchburg’s TDI District represents the heart of this Gateway City. Anchored by cultural institutions at either end – Fitchburg State University and the Fitchburg Art Museum – the district is filled with historic architecture and public parks that create green space throughout the downtown. The district contains a dense, transit-oriented fabric with demographics trending towards both millennials and baby boomers, reflecting an increased overall demand for the urban experience. With close proximity to the MBTA commuter rail (Fitchburg Line), the TDI District is Fitchburg’s competitive advantage in the region. The TDI Partnership’s vision is to leverage these assets to revitalize downtown and transform the area into a college town with a thriving arts and culture scene in Central Massachusetts.
