Groundbreaking set for Plymouth apartment complex





Governor Charlie Baker is scheduled to speak in Plymouth at the groundbreaking for Harborwalk Apartments, a 303-unit apartment complex at Cordage Park that is the first phase of a planned large development designed to revitalize the North Plymouth area.

The entire project is known as Plymouth Station, with plans approved for 375 additional apartment and condominium units, a 4,000-square-foot clubhouse, 33,500 square feet of retail space, a 180-seat restaurant, 21,000 square feet of office space, and a 300-slip marina.

Plans also call for extending the North Plymouth Rail Trail to connect the site to downtown Plymouth, according to Town Planner Robin Carver.

“This property has been underutilized for years, and the town recognizes the value and potential for a waterfront property such as this,” she said.

Carver said the 56-acre area was originally occupied by rope factories and several old mill buildings remain and will continue to be used by Quincy College, medical offices, restaurants and other businesses.

She said the developer hopes the MBTA will expand its currently limited rail service to the site to accommodate commuters. In the first step of the development, the Harborwalk Apartments will go up in four, four-story apartments on 11 acres, on the site of a demolished Walmart.

Twenty-five percent of the apartments will be designated as affordable. Carver said the 56-acre area was originally occupied by the Cordage rope factory — at one time among the world’s largest manufacturers of rope and twine.
