The City of Haverhill, led by Mayor James Fiorentini, in conjunction with the Haverhill City Council, has been working cooperatively to complete a transformative redevelopment of downtown Haverhill. With this in the mind, the City published a Request for Proposal (RFP) in October 2020 for 4.49 acres of land, which includes the existing Goecke Parking Deck. The goal – provide a premier redevelopment opportunity that will provide economic benefits and vitality to a district that is in the midst of public and private reinvestment, while also providing replacement parking that will serve the City’s needs for decades to come.
RFP: Downtown Haverhill/Merrimack Street Development Parcels
The City’s recently completed master plan, Vision Haverhill 2035, calls out the importance of Downtown and the riverfront. To facilitate development, zoning provides bonus provisions for dense development that enhances public access and open space in concert with new uses. This area of the Downtown has been targeted for a range of uses that include distinctive retail, offices and restaurants, housing, and other uses.
The City received five proposals for this RFP. Please click on the links below to review the responses.
