Southbridge is planning to build a new 160-bed long-term care home at our existing Hope Street Terrace location. To do so, an abandoned building needs to be demolished.
If the abandoned building (which has been empty for 12 years) is historically designated, Southbridge cannot develop on this site and will be forced to move the existing beds and jobs.
