Old Salem Jail

Redevelopment Planning

Salem, MA

Harriman assisted the Salem Redevelopment Authority in advancing the redevelopment of the historic and abandoned jail complex in the downtown. Harriman prepared design studies and redevelopment feasibility studies to help establish the range of market-supportable uses, prepared the Developer Request for Proposals, helped market the property. Harriman then provided professional assistance in the review of the proposals and in the subsequent designation of a preferred developer and a project. This project included community participation and close coordination with historic preservation agencies and advocates.
