Mill Plaza Mixed-Use Development

Current Harriman Project

Durham Mill, Massachusetts

Harriman has served as the architects, building engineers, urban designers, landscape architects and planners for this complex mixed-use development on a compact site in the center of Durham. The development includes 130 housing units and 80,000 square feet of commercial space including a Hannaford’s grocery store, a pharmacy, bank and a variety of restaurants, shops and offices. The design includes 350 parking spaces. The design responds to the Town and community intention to extend the mixed-use character of the adjacent Main Street district into the site with multi-story buildings, active sidewalks, plazas, and pedestrian connections.

Our multi-disciplinary team was selected by the project developers to take on this these roles because of our ability to integrate different uses on a complex site and address the needs of a grocery, retail tenants, office, housing within a dense building complex. The project must contend with significant grades, provision of a below-grade garage component, and challenging zoning regulations.
