This transformative new mixed-use development is designed to reinvigorate the streetscape, create active pedestrian corridors to the river from Merrimack Street, and offer a variety of uses that will significantly enhance the local business district. Among the properties to be included in the development is the Woolworth Building, which has been vacant for over 40 years, and other nearby parcels. Phase one will feature two new midrise buildings: a five-story, 53,500 square foot commercial building with first floor retail, UMass Lowell Haverhill satellite campus space on the second and third floors, and office space on the upper floors; and a seven story 81,500 square foot commercial building with ground floor retail and river front restaurant space, a mix of commercial uses, boardwalk and public plaza – all built on a raised development platform that will allow direct access to the river while also providing underground parking. It is anticipated that an adjacent recreational boat dock facility with ocean access will further enhance this 1 1/2 acre downtown Haverhill waterfront site in the future.
