A reopening ceremony on Friday for the Central Grammar Apartments on Dale Avenue in Gloucester celebrated a $19.2 million rehabilitation project by The Community Builders Inc. and the Gloucester Development Team. The historic five-story former school, built in 1889 and 1922 of masonry and granite, was the first school-to-residential conversion in Massachusetts in 1975 and now contains 80 apartments, 78 of which are designated as affordable. At the ribbon-cutting are, from left, building superintendent and resident Joe Poirier, Ward 2 Councilwoman Melissa Cox, state Rep. Ann-Margaret Ferrante, state Sen. Bruce Tarr, Mayor Carolyn Kirk, Gloucester Development Team president Mark Sandler, and Senior Project Manager James Perrine of Community Builders.
