The community once known as Wolfe Terrace Apartments, originally built in 1979, has been undergoing a massive renovation and expansion that will be fully completed this summer.

Acquired by Ingerman, an award-winning multifamily builder and manager specializing in high-quality affordable housing, the community was renamed The Willows at Berlin, under their affordable family housing line.
