A vibrant transit-oriented mixed-use development, realized in phases, recreates a sizable city block in downtown Brockton with retail, commercial and housing uses. Suffering from considerable blight and deterioration, the rebirth of this pivotal location serves as a catalyst for reinvestment and complies with the Downtown Brockton Smart Growth Overlay District which calls for increasing residential units per acre, reducing the parking requirement, and expansion of the arts and culture district.

Phase one consists of 113 units of housing, 42 artist live work lofts and a gallery for local artists along with the rehabilitation of the Enterprise Building into 55,000 square feet of new commercial space. A reimagined and rededicated 10,000 square foot Korean-Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial Park is sited at the entry of the historic Enterprise newspaper’s former headquarters, resulting in a strong sense of pride and place. A water feature, seating, and ample native plantings combine to create an inviting and flexible gathering area, with opportunities for quiet reflection. This accessible urban pocket park doubles as an outdoor amenity space for adjacent residential and retail tenant community uses, providing a respite and miniature oasis in a safe, sharable space.

The continued redevelopment of the Enterprise Block will provide dozens of new households with quality housing and economic opportunities in downtown Brockton, just steps from a regional transit hub.
