Fuss & O’Neill provided site design, parking plans, roadway improvements, and stormwater upgrades for a new Market Basket grocery store. The changes created a safe, functional, and aesthetically pleasing site, which has encouraged redevelopment of the surrounding area.
The design included 453 on-site parking spaces, 9 of which are ADA accessible. Adding to the aesthetics of Elm Street, a concrete sidewalk with a brick border and 14 tree wells were created. Bump-outs were constructed to protect the parallel parking spaces. The bituminous sidewalk on West Auburn Street was replaced with a concrete sidewalk and a Manchester Transit Authority bus stop was installed.
Stormwater improvements included additional catch basins and relocation of the existing drainage line due to the building expansion. Site stormwater is treated by two mechanical filter systems located on southern portion of the property.
