Lottery Underway for New Gemini Townhomes: deadline June 28, 2024


The City of Springfield has partnered with the North End Housing Initiative and C&C Homes to provide funding for new construction of four new single family homes at the following locations in the Maple-High/Six Corners neighborhood:

  • 251 Central Street
  • 402 Central Street
  • 414 Central Street
  • 271 Pine Street

Each newly constructed home will have three (3) bedrooms and two and a half (2 ½) bathrooms. 414 Central Street and 251 Central Street will have garages.  Each home will be sold for approximately $190,000.  In today's real estate market, this presents an incredible economic opportunity for a family to purchase a home with significant equity from the start. Because of this, the City of Springfield has decided to choose the ultimate purchasers through a lottery system. It is anticipated that construction and sales will be completed by late Autumn 2023. View Mayor Sarno's Press Release
