A private developer, Edward A. Fish Associates, Inc. of Boston, converted this historic downtown building to residential units -- many of which are used as live/work artist space -- with retail and exhibit space for an art gallery (Ayer Lofts Gallery) conveniently housed on the ground floor of the building. The project was completed in spring of 2000. Open concept spaces mix with traditional condo units, available for rent (by owners) and for purchase. Ayer Lofts is in a great downtown location along a lovely cobblestone street just across from the New England Quilt Museum and around the corner from the Lowell National Historical Park Visitor Center.
