Look for a new edition of an old building in Marlborough.
An old printing building near downtown will be converted to 90 luxury apartments, according to a developer who recently bought the building for $2.3 million.
The DesignPak factory building, which sits on Maple Street, is an enormous concrete structure and water tower; at one point, city library officials had hoped to move the public library there. That plan never took off.
College Street LLC, a company that got its start developing factory space near Yale University, recently bought the site. Joe Pittorino, co-owner of College Street with David Nyberg, said he drove by the property last spring and saw the "For Sale" sign. Pittorino and Nyberg are both Acton natives.
No date has been given as to when renovations will start; the project must receive legislative and local approval.
