Parsons Village

71 Parsons Street, Easthampton, MA

Energy-efficient homes in a development designed to enhance community, conserve resources and set a new standard for affordable housing. 

Developed by Valley CDC and designed by Dietz & Company Architects, Parsons Village was created to provide comfortable, modern housing while adhering to the highest standards of energy-efficiency. Sitting on 4.3 acres near the foot of Mount Tom, the seven townhouse-style buildings are arranged around a common green. Located just off the Manhan Bike Trail, the development is minutes from the recreational and cultural offerings of Easthampton’s revitalized mill district and its downtown shops and restaurants.

Now managed by Way Finders, Parsons Village offers 38 one- to three-bedroom townhome apartments. The units are solar-powered via a 3,708 foot solar panel array, which generates 65 kilowatts a day—enough to light 7,200 standard LED light bulbs. Each unit is super-insulated and furnished with Energy Star appliances. The property includes a playground and shared community building, as well as onsite laundry and parking.
