Woolworth building to be demolished, replaced by Harbor Place

Continue reading below

The long-vacant Woolworth building is expected to be demolished this spring to make way for Harbor Place, a mixed-use development that will house a satellite campus for the University of Massachusetts Lowell as well as several restaurants and stores. The 1.5-acre waterfront building will feature a seven-story commercial building with ground-floor retail shops and riverfront restaurants, as well as a pedestrian corridor to a new Merrimack River boardwalk and public plaza. The redevelopment project is being led by Merrimack Street Ventures LLC, a partnership of two nonprofits, the Greater Haverhill Foundation and the Planning Office for Urban Affairs. Redevelopment of the Woolworth building, which has sat empty for more than 40 years, “will prove to be the most significant development project in the city of Haverhill,” state Representative Brian S. Dempsey, a Haverhill Democrat and chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means, said in a written statement, noting that Harbor Place “will change the downtown landscape while promoting one of our city’s greatest resources in providing access to the Merrimack River.” For more information on the project, visit the city website at www.ci.haverhill.ma.us.
