North Plymouth Terrace Project under way

Construction on the North Plymouth Terrace townhome development got started with a ground-breaking ceremony Monday.

Mayor Thomas S. Richards and city Council members Carolee Conklin and Dana Miller joined developer John “Dutch” Summers and project manager and architect Steven Trobe celebrated the project on at the corner of North Plymouth Avenue and West Main Street.

“This exciting project takes us closer to transforming West Main Street into a thriving, bustling gateway to downtown,” said Richards.

Plans include the development of 24 two-story townhomes and one three-story commercial building. Each townhome will be equipped with a small backyard and a detached two-car garage, making it unique from other downtown living options. The townhomes will be sold at market rates.

The project will improve 1.5 acres of land downtown, formerly used as a surface parking lot, and it will increase market rate owner-occupancy in downtown.

Construction will be done in multiple phases over the next three years. The first phase, which will include building six townhomes, will begin this year.

The $6.5 million project has received city aid in the form of a land cost write-down to $1 and $555,000 in infrastructure improvements. The project’s development will also benefit from the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency’s CHOICE property tax abatement program, which was endorsed by the city.
