Is that the MAS building I see in Maps? On the one hand I'm glad to see development, but WCD isn't very pedestrian friendly. I wish this sort of thing could be worked into Main St instead.
I believe the listing includes 4 & 7 Dana for $1.2m, so more than what you circled above. Which is an even bigger area and prime for development (@ .65 acres).I haven't heard anything about the parking garage/mixed-use development since this article back at the end of November: https://www.pressherald.com/2021/11...wo-years-of-construction-disruption-downtown/
It was supposed to be underway already, then got delayed to starting this month. I wonder what's up? They'll need to get an extension from the Planning Board if they don't get permits and underway by April 6th.
I'm surprised 7 Dana Street hasn't gone on the market until now. That is prime real estate right on the river and connected to the river walk, and it is a fairly large parcel (including the land behind The Armory). The gap in the GIS map is the old rail ROW to Saccarappa Island.
