The Office of Planning and Economic Development (OPED), Planning Division, is in the process of creating the Barnum Station TOD Master Plan and the Adaptive Reuse Strategy for 889 Barnum Avenue (Tower Place), a former Remington Arms factory site. The TOD Plan will be a guide for reinvestment that will re-position the ½ mile area around the future Barnum Station as a transit-oriented and a mixed-use hub, which will catalyze economic growth in the city’s East Side, East End and Mill Hill neighborhoods. The Reuse Strategy will recommend ways to transform the 16 acre site of the former Remington Arms Ammunition Factory into a moderate to high-density district adjacent to the proposed Barnum Train Station.
The City has received a grant from the State Office of Policy and Management (OPM) to develop the TOD Master Plan and a grant from the State Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) to develop an Adaptive Reuse Strategy for 889 Barnum Avenue property. The Boston-based firm Goody Clancy has been hired as the consultant for both components of the plan.
