ATTLEBORO — Politicians, state officials, owners and residents all came out Monday to celebrate the start of a $23 million renovation to Gardner Terrace, a government-subsidized, low-income apartment complex for seniors and handicapped individuals.

It was billed as a groundbreaking ceremony, but no ground was actually broken.

There were, however, a number of speeches at the mid-morning ceremony, which was held in the courtyard of the complex under a tent where coffee, water, danish and blueberry muffins were served.

The owner of the complex, a nonprofit called Preservation of Affordable Housing, has been working toward the project since it bought the property in August 2020.

POAH, as it is known, made some immediate repairs to the 122-year-old building, which is a converted jewelry factory located at 46 Pine St.
