The Pomeroy Building in Easton: The View from Inside

This building probably hasn’t looked this good in about 40 years. Little Pocket Guide has a first look inside.

As anyone who’s been following along knows, we’ve been doing a series of updates here showing the progress of the construction of the Pomeroy Building in the 300 block of Northampton St. in Easton. Over the past six years, this building has gone from a gutted, cavernous shell, to what you are about to see. When it’s finished, it will offer 22 brand new one- and two-bedroom apartments, a restaurant (a French Brasserie called Maxim 22 coming to us from the owners of Sette Luna) and some other very exciting—but confidential at present time—businesses. This is the first time I’ve been in the building in about six years. The last time I was there, there were no floors and no staircases; there was definitely no elevator, no windows and very few walls. The only things you will see in these photos that are original to the building, other than the exterior walls, are the black support beams that run through the building.

Thanks to Mark Mulligan of VM Development Group for taking me on this tour and allowing me to be the first person to photograph the interior progress. In the spirit of full disclosure, Mark is also the landlord of the building where my office is, the National Building at 400 Northampton St., also in Easton.

There’s currently a waiting list for these apartments. If you’re interested, I’ll be posting a contact number a little later. There’s no better time to be living downtown.
