The Planning Office for Urban Affairs, together with Bank of America Community Development Corporation, formed Salem Lafayette Development, LLC in 2005 to redevelop the former St. Joseph’s Parish property in Salem Massachusetts. The 2.6-acre site is located adjacent to the downtown Salem commercial district, the Point Neighborhood, Lafayette Park, and a short distance from Salem State College. It is the largest undeveloped parcel in the downtown area, and serves as the gateway to both the downtown and to the poorest neighborhood in the City. St. Joseph’s will be converted into a 51-unit mixed-use development with affordable housing and ground floor retail space.
