Town’s Opportunity Zone Goals

  • Redevelop Abandoned Jewelry Factories in Downtown North Attleborough. North Attleborough was once the jewelry capital of the world. Many of the jewelry companies that once called North Attleborough home have since gone out of business or have moved their operations overseas. Now there are numerous sites in North Attleborough, many of which are in our two opportunity zones that could be redeveloped for other purposes. Redeveloping these sites is a top priority for the Town of North Attleborough.  
  • Rehabilitate Older Buildings and Distressed Properties in Downtown North Attleborough. A significant percentage of the two opportunity zones in North Attleborough encompasses the Town’s downtown, much of which is mixed-use. This unique feature of the North Attleborough opportunity zones will allow investors to realize the potential of redeveloping underutilized mixed-use, high-density housing with commercial space on the ground floor. With the addition of a 193-unit luxury apartment complex currently being constructed in downtown North Attleborough, more individuals will be living and playing in downtown North Attleborough than at any time in the Town’s history.
  • Locate an Innovation Center in North Attleborough. The Town of North Attleborough is currently seeking to open an innovation center to grow the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. By utilizing Opportunity Funds, investors may now invest in the physical structure of an innovation center and those startups that rent space. There are several sites within the two Opportunity Zones that could house an innovation center.
