High-End Residential: Modern living in a historically renovated building. The Howard offers large, open concept apartments with a loft-like feel featuring ceiling heights of 10'-12'. The large windows allow an abundance of natural light to pour into each meticulously planned unit. Each unit is finished with high-end modern conveniences and are high-efficiency, requiring less power consumption to provide a healthy, comfortable living space.



The Howard Building located on what was once known as The Howard Block, was originally constructed in 1916 and supported a hardware and agricultural implement business, which catered to the surrounding farms and great estates of the rural Berkshires. The Howard family business sold tools, dairy & poultry supplies, as well as other important farming implements. However, they were best known as a seed company, annually producing a seed catalogue, which was published through 1960, and issuing 10,000 copies that year alone. These Catalogues can now be found at the Athenaeum, made possible by Frank Howard's granddaughter, Holly Stover-Howard. The building played an important role in the community, but as time changed, as it always does, so did the need for seeds and it eventually closed. It is interesting how things can change and then change back again.

Allegrone has renovated the entire building to preserve and restore its historic nature. This restoration development has preserved a part of the City's history, while breathing new life into its prosperous future. Enjoy the charm and reminiscent past through the synergy of modern day amenities and commerce building possibilities. 


The Howard is a historic mixed-use building in the heart of Downtown Pittsfield. Located at the corner of First Street and Federal Street, The Howard offers prime, ground-level retail space and high-end apartments.
