Project Description:

The Salem Master plan created a vision for Salem to expand downtown south with landmark gateway, stimulate economic development on a currently aging site, attract new tenants to Salem, and improve pedestrian environment and rationalize traffic. A two year community review process involving city departments, and more importantly the historic Salem and walkable Salem neighborhood groups, greatly impacted the development of the design and orientation of the project. Development for the project also involved negotiation of the acquisition of land owned by the City of Salem to further improve the community experience.
