The Drew Farmhouse is a 5-unit affordable project, which will preserve all of the existing exterior architectural features of c.1865 building located at the Gateway to Westford. The view from Boston Road will remain as it is now. Removal of more than half of the front parking lot will add green space. This space will become five simple apartments — four one-bedroom and one two-bedroom — to be rented at workforce affordable rents to applicants that can no longer afford to live in the town where they grew up or where they work. To live at the Drew Farmhouse, residents must earn 100% of the area median income or less..
