College looks at intown housing

Apartments would be for Salem State faculty, graduate students


In the past, Salem State has expressed “very preliminary” interest in two vacant court buildings on Federal Street and has talked about establishing a downtown presence through housing, a college academic program or a performing arts center.

The agreement with RCG is the closest Salem State has come to making the move.

“It’s exciting that they’re building this and that we can be part of it,” Torello said. “It’s exciting for the continuing renaissance of the downtown.”

This development is planned on a site owned by RCG with a strip of retail stores, a former billiard parlor and a parking lot.
