Designed by Hastings, Peabody Union intentionally aligns with adaptive reuse of the historic trolley barns next to the site. The trolly barns has a series of three long, linear commercial buildings are oriented north-south. The 3 new retail buildings the new development will align with the trolly barns and will extend the pedestrian experience between both sites.
The street level of this pedestrian centric project includes wide landscaped pedestrian paseos, connections and improvements (including a new trail head) to the Rolling Hill Mill Greenways trail. There is also a new signalized intersection at the corner of KVB and the newly proposed Guthrie Street. The new road is located between the substation and the new development and will provide access to the lower parking and back of house areas. It will also intersect Peabody Street.
Construction began in the summer of last year with mass excavation activities. The construction team has since permitted foundation to grade plans and the project has started going vertical. Here’s a look at current construction progress.
