Under the direction of Mayor Joseph C. Sullivan, the Town of Braintree has been progressing with efforts to re-develop the former Braintree Electric Light Department (BELD) site at 44 Allen Street. Among the efforts undertaken has a year long public outreach effort under the direction of the Community Design Resource Center (CDRC) of Boston with residents and community leaders to review possible re-use options for the property.

As a second measure in promoting the site for re-development was having a feasibility study performed that could address potential due diligence questions a developer could have in consideration of the property. This was completed by Gamble Associates in early spring of 2014 and is now available for public review and comment click on titles below:

As a public entity, the Town must adhere to public solicitation of the next step to encourage developers to submit proposals for the property based on the guidelines to date established through this process. It is anticipated this will be forthcoming in next few months.
