42 Lafayette Square, Haverhill, MA

A developer in a historically disinvested mixed-use area of Haverhill, MA proposes to construct 14 market-rate housing units and two commercial units in a four-story building. The site had been vacant for 23 years after a fire destroyed the previous structure. The size and architecture of the proposed building is in line with its neighbors, as well as the previous structure. The proposal is the work of a developer who has invested elsewhere in the immediate vicinity and who is attempting to make transformative investments in the area.
