79 South Pleasant Street Renovation

The historic 1834 First Baptist Church at 79 South Pleasant Street on the Town Common is currently under renovation. The updated and expanded building will be the future home of the Five College Center for the Study of World Languages along with a few of Amherst College’s administrative departments including Human Resources, Public Affairs, and Investments. Designed by Kuhn Riddle Architects, the renovation and addition gives a careful nod to the historical importance of the building and its contemporary context while reinvigorating its presence on the Town Common.  The project is being built by the construction management team of Aquadro & Cerruti, Inc.
