A key site at Kelley Square, between Green and Harding Streets will anchor the southern end of the proposed Blackstone Canal District. Originally created to connect Worcester to Providence, RI, the Blackstone Canal was a nineteenth century success—until the railroad companies took over land shipping, following the world-wide pattern of canal displacement.
This project combines a Food Hub / Market Hall with Exhibition Space, Shops, Restaurant and Cafe Spaces, Shared Office and Maker Spaces, Residential Units, various rooftop amenities and Grow Spaces. It will be designed with sustainability in mind for all its systems.
Residential units will be provided with at least two significant exposures for light and air. A Robotic Parking system will be housed in the basement. Surface parking will be shared with the historic Compton Loom Works Building adjacent.
