Site Redevelopment Strategy
City of Fall River hired The Keefe Company in 1996 to develop
a strategy for the reuse of the 33-acre Kerr Mill site, which
had been levelled by a 1987 fire.
The redevelopment strategy called
for the construction of a modern industrial park on the site,
along with a new waterfront park on the shore of South Watuppa
The first phase of the project,
the UMass-Dartmouth Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Center
opened in 2001 in a new 60,000 square foot facility.
1994, the federal government designated 66 "Enterprise Communities"
around the nation. Each one is receiving funding and technical
assistance for community development efforts including business
development, human services, job training and education.
The Keefe Company developed the strategy the
City of Lowell used in its successful application for designation
as an Enterprise Community, which has brought $3 million in federal
aid to the city.
and Development Opportunities
for Boston University, The Keefe Company developed a comprehensive
public improvement program for the streets, sidewalks, and subway
and bus stations of Kenmore Square. The program won unanimous
support from businesses in the Square and the surrounding neighborhood,
and is now being implemented. The Keefe Company also advised BU
on private commercial and residential development opportunities
that the university is now actively considering.
City of Salem
City of Salem asked The Keefe Company to prepare action strategies
for the city's historic waterfront and for its downtown retail
and cultural core. The plans proposed a number of "catalyst
projects" to strengthen the downtown and historic areas and
improve the linkages between them.
The city has embarked on an aggressive implementation
program for both of these plans.
for the City of Brockton and the Brockton 21st Century Corporation,
the Keefe Company prepared a downtown revitalization action plan,
and a redevelopment plan and implementation strategy to transform
the former King Size factory site into the downtown Montello Industrial
