Harbor Place is a new mixed-use development that has reinvigorated the streetscape and provides pedestrian access to a new Merrimack River boardwalk and public plaza. Copley Wolff Design Group designed the streetscape improvements along Merrimack Street, the 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. It provides space for outdoor dining and contains curved seat walls and planters that incorporate salvaged yellow brick details from the historic Woolworth building that once shared the site.
To celebrate the reconnection of the site to the Merrimack River, maritime- style detailing is used on prominent site features such as the courtyard’s buoy – a water feature element consisting of style steel and mesh.
