85-95 First Street previously consisted of a single story, 6,400 SF block of underutilized retail stores and 42 parking spaces. The structure was razed in spring 2018 to make way for a single-story, 10,000 retail space with 11 adjacent surface parking spaces. Designed by Perkins Eastman and located within the First Street Corridor, the project was completed in summer 2019. The three retail tenants will be Loyal Companion, Sherwin-Williams, and the United States Post Office.
