Known not so affectionately as Shaugnessy Terrace, the Lowell Housing Authority used its quasi-private development arm (the RFDC) to demolish this challenging public housing sites and return this 160 acre site to a privately owned neighborhood community.

Waterfield Design created an innovative site design for this beautiful Concord River property, mirroring the time tested ethnic neighborhoods that surround it. Our new plan, embraced with Massachusetts DHCD and Federal features wonderful new public open spaces, a natural resource park at the site’s elegant Concord River frontage, and a vibrant new neighborhood.

Being watched on a national level for its innovative design approach toward solving complex public residency issues, when completed this project will be an award-winning example for housing across the country. Waterfield Design Group, Inc. was responsible for the site design and layout, permitting, infrastructure planning and development, property research, cost estimating, and substantial construction management assistance.
