The City of Chicopee was originally four villages, a geographic divide that has created distinct neighborhoods: Willimansett, Fairview, Chicopee Center, Aldenville, Chicopee Falls, or Burnett Road, any of which will be the perfect place to unpack your boxes.
There is a wide range of available apartments for rent, from newer units located in the outer neighborhoods to historically renovated and centrally located lofts. The price of rent will not vary drastically from one neighborhood to the next (average rent around $900) with the exception of three neighborhood/housing combinations:
Willimansett, located on the outer edge of the city limits, has more a suburban feel and cheap apartments. Rent a two bedroom townhouse close to highway access and green space or a sunny two bedroom in a brownstone building located in the denser area of Willimansett, either for around $700-$850.
The centrally situated apartments for rent in the Chicopee Center neighborhood, located on the Chicopee River, are old but well kept. Beautifully renovated lofts in historic factories can cost well over $1,000 per month.
The Burnett Road area can be pricier but as always it can depend on the unit. This area includes Country Club Estates and the city’s country club, so be prepared for newer construction and square footage with views. Burnett Road in addition to Williamanset will be your go-to neighborhoods for pet friendly apartments.
Good luck finding your apartment in Chicopee, now you’ll just have to decide which neighborhood to call home.
