Salem's North Broadway may see another new retail plaza
The Planning Board recently approved a lot line adjustment between the Dunkin' Donuts property at 225 North Broadway and the lot at 223 North Broadway.
Project engineer David Jordan of MHF Design said the new owner of 223 North Broadway is looking to build a 6,400-square-foot retail building on the property.
Although the Planning Board granted the lot line adjustment, it continued the site plan review to allow more time for independent traffic and engineering reviews of the plan.
Moldoff said the independent consultant has recommended that there be a wider entrance onto the site as well as a two-lane exit, allowing vehicles to more easily make right-hand turns onto North Broadway.
"There's not anything shown for loading, yet depending on what stores go in there, there could be a lot of loading," he said.
"That will be a big benefit to the town," he said.
Jordan said the site plan will meet the town's parking requirements.
The building itself will be L-shaped, with three of the retail units facing the parking lot and one facing North Broadway.firstname.lastname@example.org
