On November 3, city and state officials gathered at the site of Worcester’s new Doherty Memorial High School to celebrate the start of construction on this significant project with a groundbreaking ceremony. LPA|A began working on the design for the school in 2019 and anticipates a 2024 opening. The new school will be 420,000 square feet and is designed for an enrollment of 1,670 students.
Among the remarks made at the event:
“When I saw the designs for the new Doherty I was stunned. It’s amazing. It’s like one of the colleges we have here. It is going to be a treasure for the community.”
State Representative John J. Mahoney
“I want to congratulate the folks here for putting together the team that you did: Tishman, Lamoureux Pagano, Fontaine Brothers and Dimeo. I knew this project was going to go swimmingly.”
