New Judicial Center News

by @ 6:58 am. Filed under Registry Ops, Current Events

Today’s Lowell Sun reports that city and state officials have agreed to locate the city’s new judicial center in the Hamilton Canal District, adjacent to the intersection of Dutton and Middlesex Streets. It seems that one of the big advantages of this site is that the city of Lowell already owns it, thereby minimizing if not eliminating land acquisition costs. The two other parcels under consideration, the Davidson Street parking lot and Central Plaza on Church Street, are both privately owned or contain significant amounts of privately owned property which would require expensive eminent domain takings. Other advantages of this lot include its proximity to the under-construction city parking garage on Middlesex Street and to the Gallagher Terminal which is the terminus of MBTA train line from Boston and the Lowell Regional Transit Authority’s bus hub for the region. The planned building will have 270,000 square feet of space spread over six floors. Tomorrow, I’ll write more about how this will affect the registry of deeds.
