Pawtucket Central Falls Development celebrated the grand opening of their 46-unit Branch Blackstone affordable housing project with a ribbon cutting ceremony. ES&M was recognized as an important team member involved in preliminary environmental assessment, grant acquisition and implementation, site remediation and civil site development of the site. The project has revitalized a blighted section of the City along the eastern bank of the historic Blackstone River. ES&M is also on the team working on the East Street Park project right next door. PCF Development and the City of Pawtucket are working to create a new public riverfront park at the end of East Street, adjacent to the new apartments on Branch Street. The new park, formerly the site of illegal trash dumping, will have seating, a walking path, shade trees and new landscaping.
