VERTEX served as the Owner’s Project Manager for the Town of Walpole for the new Walpole Council on Aging Building project. The new Walpole Council on Aging Building, to be known as the “South Street Center,” was constructed on the Town’s property at 50 South Street as part of the Town’s efforts to re-develop the former industrial site. The Center shares the site with the Town’s newly constructed Police Headquarters building and is on the southerly part of the site overlooking the Neponset River watershed. The new, multi-story, fully accessible, building is approximately 13,000 square feet and offers a variety of spaces providing local seniors with services focused on socialization, nutrition, and fitness. The Center has a large multi-purpose room capable of holding a variety of functions including exercise classes, musical or speaking performances, and large group meals. The Center also houses administrative offices, information areas, fitness areas, social gathering spaces, and activity/classroom spaces.
