Enterprise Block

Brockton, MA

Combining 250 new apartments, 7500 retail SF, 55,000 office SF and parking, the Enterprise Block Development offers a pedestrian-friendly, transit-oriented, mix of uses in downtown Brockton, steps away from a commuter rail station. The two new mixed-income rental buildings engage the downtown streetscape with stoops and glassy lobbies, while wrapping around a lushly landscaped courtyard with pool. The Enterprise Building is the adaptive reuse of a 55,000 SF former newspaper plant for commercial office space. Its cheaply constructed 1950s façade was demolished to reveal the original robust masonry building front, which has now been restored to with broad storefronts and detailed moldings.  Ground floor uses include a Gallery to showcase the works of resident artists, a new restaurant, and office space for State Agencies. A redesigned corner Veterans invites the public onto the site and allows summer outdoor dining for restaurant patrons.  Engaging the rich history of this former manufacturing city, the Enterprise Block creates a new paradigm for modern, urban core living.
