Harbor Place

 Haverhill, MA –Copley Wolff Design Group recently celebrated the dedication of Harbor Place, a 176,000sf mixed-use property in Haverhill, marking the completion of the transformative waterfront project designed by The Architectural Team for project owners the Greater Haverhill Foundation and the Planning Office for Urban Affairs.  Copley Wolff was tasked with leading the landscape design for the development, which includes commercial, retail, and residential components, as well as a satellite campus for the University of Massachusetts.  

The dynamic design for the property encompasses streetscape improvements along Merrimack Street, a waterfront boardwalk, and a public/private courtyard plaza. The courtyard design consists of a large open lawn bordered by extra-wide terraced concrete seat walls. In addition, the courtyard provides three semi-private alcoves for restaurant spill-out space. The area is designated through a combination of curved seat walls and planters that incorporate salvaged yellow brick details from the historic Woolworth building that once shared the site.

To honor the reconnection of the site to the Merrimack River, maritime-style detailing is used on prominent features such as the courtyard’s buoy — a water feature element consisting of style steel and mesh. 

The Harbor Place project showcases the city’s determination to reconnect its residents and visitors to the historic waterfront and promote business growth through innovative mixed-use programming.


This development represents several projects Copley Wolff has managed in the mixed-use sector throughout the region. Additional projects include the landscape design at Assembly Row in Somerville and Jefferson at Malden Center in Malden, as well as Ink Block, Lovejoy Wharf, and The Hub on Causeway in Boston

“With the design of this environment, our team’s primary objective focused on establishing a pedestrian-friendly, transit-oriented destination that connects the community to the Merrimack River, Haverhill’s greatest resource,” said Chris Scheufler of Copley Wolff Design Group. “Our team is proud to have played a role in the city’s plan to reinvigorate Haverhill’s downtown and provide greater access to the waterfront for public enjoyment.”
