Citing Northampton-to-Easthampton trend, contractor developing small, high-end office spaces in Easthampton's Button Building
"A decade ago, you wouldn't even think about building something like this," said contractor Kevin Perrier. "Northampton was the place to be. Now, everyone's looking at Easthampton." Perrier, president and CEO of Five Star Building Corp., was referring to the 11 small, "high-end office spaces" he is developing in the Button Building at 123 Cottage St. "There's a need for this kind of space in Easthampton," he said. "I kept getting calls from people. They were looking for well-finished professional offices with modern amenities -- a place where they could meet with their clients."
