Haverhill, MA – Dellbrook|JKS joined The Procopio Companies, MassWorks, MDM Transportation Consultants, Cube 3 Architecture, Senator Barry Finegold, and Mayor James J. Fiorentini, along with other city officials on Dec. 5, 2023 to celebrate the commencement of construction on The Beck, a new mixed-use multifamily project, and the Elm Street intersection improvement plan. Both projects serve to transform an underutilized space and improve living in the area.
Situated at 39 Railroad Ave, The Beck Project is located at a vacant factory site along the Merrimack River. The transit-oriented development, spanning 266,449sf, neighbors the Bradford Commuter Rail Station, providing access to Boston.
Plans for the 5-story waterfront structure include wood-and-steel frame over podium construction and the creation of 347 parking spaces. The mixed community integrates residential and commercial spaces, with 7,587sf of ground-floor restaurant space, featuring a terrace overlooking river views and 1,126sf of retail space positioned beneath 290 market-rate apartments.
Other amenities of The Beck include a riverside boardwalk leading to a pocket park at the development’s west end and a full-size park to the east, including an amphitheater, playground, dog park and walking paths interconnected to the city’s riverwalk loop.
Al Nassar, senior superintendent at Dellbrook|JKS, said, “Dellbrook|JKS is a proud partner with The Procopio Companies, and we’re excited to be collaborating with its team again for The Beck. This property has played several roles in the Haverhill community, and we look forward to revitalizing this space into a place the city can enjoy once more.”
Since beginning the project’s foundations in June 2023, Dellbrook|JKS and its partners have finished over four stories of wood frame construction on The Beck’s first half. The Beck is scheduled to open in the summer of 2025 and marks the third collaboration between Dellbrook|JKS and The Procopio Companies, following the completion of Mosaic and Caldwell in Lynn.
