Salem, NH – New Hampshire Senator Chuck Morse joined Tuscan Brands owner, Joe Faro, and the Tuscan Brands Real Estate team, along with the PROCON design-build team, at a beam-raising ceremony on Dec. 3 to mark a significant milestone in the construction of a nearly 300,000sf development project located at Tuscan Village in Salem.
The 5-story building will include a 165-room Marriott soft-brand hotel, 91 luxury apartments with private underground parking, 30,000sf of ground-level retail space, a 12,000sf event and function facility, 10,000sf Tuscan Brands restaurant with extensive outdoor dining, rooftop bar, pool and sundeck. The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2023.
Tuscan Village is a mixed-use destination designed to embody a live, work, stay, play lifestyle. When completed, Tuscan Village will total approximately 4 million sq. ft. of residential, life science, and office space; hotels; restaurants; and experiential retailers.
“Tuscan Village represents the kind of best-in-class development project that aligns with PROCON’s expertise as a design-build company,” said John Stebbins, managing director of PROCON. “We are proud to be able to help make Joe Faro’s vision for Tuscan Village a reality.”
Representatives of PROCON say it was chosen for this project because of its unique design-build process that integrates architecture, engineering, and construction management to facilitate a seamless development process from concept to completion.
Prior to raising the beam, Morse stated, “We are moving into the downtown right now. This is the first building going up in the downtown. This is sending a symbol to the town of Salem that really does makes a difference, the sense of community, thanks to Joe’s efforts.”
“Thanks to the tremendous support from the governor, senators, State of New Hampshire, and the Town of Salem, we are thrilled to reach this milestone on such a transformative and impactful mixed- use building in the heart of Tuscan Village,” said Joe Faro, owner of Tuscan Brands. “It’s an exciting time for Tuscan Village and the surrounding communities as our vision for the entire project becomes a reality.”
