Village Hill Northampton

Wright Builders, Inc. is proud to have been the first residential developer to be involved in the design and development of this historic 100+ acre site on the southwestern side of Northampton, Massachusetts.

Since 2002, MassDevelopment for Hospital Hill Development LLC has invested over $18 million in planning and infrastructure construction, and created the inspired master plan.

Over 200 homes, including apartments, condominiums, townhomes and single-family houses, now cluster along homey, well landscaped streets in this cozy modern village. The North Campus houses residential, retail and office space, while on the other side of Rte 66, the South Campus, office and light industrial businesses thrive.

A wonderful place to live or work, where the upkeep outdoors is taken care of by the commons association and everything you need is just a short sidewalk away, Village Hill’s ambiance hearkens to the past, yet expresses a vital contemporary energy.

All this within a stone’s throw of the thriving downtown shopping, galleries, theaters & restaurants.

The Upper Ridge at Village Hill Northampton

The Upper Ridge, recently completed, is a trend-setting project by Wright Builders of Northampton, combining the absolute latest in tested and proven building science and technology with inspired classic design. Building on the proven record of 27 prior LEED certified homes and townhomes, The Upper Ridge is comprised of 12 townhomes, 3 single family homes, and 12 fully accessible one floor condominium homes in four phases over 4 years. The building styles include, for the first time, a reinterpretation of the Greek Revival Style for eight townhomes, as well as two 3-story 6-unit elevator equipped buildings in a distinctive Arts and Crafts style. In addition, an Arts and Crafts Duplex and 3 Victorian and Craftsman single family homes are planned. All homes are sold and occupied.

All homes have enclosed parking, some underneath the building, and private patios or balconies, along with inspired landscape architecture and planting design that helps provide both privacy and a sense of connection. The project is designed to provide easy walking and cycling access to and around Beech Tree Park, as well as to the extensive network of trails within Village Hill, and those connecting to bike and walking trails serving downtown Northampton and beyond. Enjoy the majestic trees, the distant rush of the Paradise Pond dam, the undulating Holyoke and Mt. Tom peaks, abundant birds and wildlife, and a new neighborhood to call your own.


Prior to The Upper Ridge, Beechwood, completed and sold in 2014, was Wright Builders’ newest neighborhood of LEED Registered and ENERGY STAR certified homes at Village Hill Northampton. These six homes are completed and being enjoyed by their families.  Designs include the: Artisan’s Cottage and Montague Farmhouse designs and a rambling ranch, offering spacious one floor living.
