Site Name

Former Briscoe Middle School

Size

Approximate sq. ft. of building is 144,000; Parcel size is 6.5 acres

Description

The former Briscoe School was built in 1923 on an irregularly shaped lot located at the intersection of Sohier Road and Colon Street, close to downtown and the Montserrat Commuter Rail Station. The site has experienced a number of changes over time; it currently features a grass covered playing field nearly 2 acres in size located behind the building, a bus parking area and long term parking located to the west and northwest of the building adjacent to Sohier Road. The City intends to sell the property to a qualified party for the purposes of redevelopment of the property that will offer a mix of community benefits and amenities, that will preserve and rehabilitate the school building and preserve open space, and that will generate tax revenue over the long term, and is consistent with the character of the neighborhood. The property is currently zoned for residential uses. However, the City is considering alternative uses that will require zoning amendment(s) or other relief. The City will consider additional assistance that supports a creative redevelopment concept that successfully advances community interests.
