MCPHS purchases historical properties in block bound by Belmont and Lincoln streets

WORCESTER — The Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences purchased Wednesday a row of historical properties in a block bound by Belmont and Lincoln streets.

The properties are addressed 26 and 34 Old Lincoln St, and 31 and 33 New Lincoln St., according to property records.


Old Lincoln Street is wrapped around the back of the properties, having access from both sides of the block to Lincoln Street.


Two of the properties, at 26 and 34 Old Lincoln St., are home to red-bricked buildings known as the William H. Bliss Building and the Harrison Bliss Tenement House. Both were built in the 1880s.



The William H. Bliss Building is on the National Register of Historical Places.

Those two properties are combined in the same deed and were sold to the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences by Nino Micozzi of Boston for $6.75 million, according to property records.


The combined value of the properties at 26 and 24 Old Lincoln St. was assessed this year at just over $2,45 million.


Also Wednesday, the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences acquired the property at 31 New Lincoln St. for $1.25 million from Michael Covino of Niche Hospitality. The property’s value was assessed at $206,100 this year, according to property records.


The Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences also bought the property at 33 New Lincoln St. for $3.675 million from Glenn Metzger. The property’s value was assessed this year at $446,200.


School officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment about plans for the properties.


With the purchases, the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences completes the ownership of an islet of land that is bound by Lincoln and Old Lincoln streets, as the school also owns 22 Old Lincoln St. in the same block.


The Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences acquired that property in 2013 for $2.9 million, according to property records.
