Hodge Continues his work in Brockton with new Fairgrounds Market Analysis

Following earlier assignments in Brockton, Hodge has been engaged by the Metro South Chamber of Commerce to lead a market analysis of redevelopment options at the 65 acre Fairgrounds site.  That site was planned to be the home of a resort casino but the plan was rejected by the Mass Gaming Commission.  Consequently, there was interest from the Metro South Chamber and City to assess the strengths and weaknesses of different redevelopment scenarios.  Hodge is analyzing site conditions and ownership, traffic and transit characteristics, surrounding uses (mostly retail and residential), and market viability to develop a set of potential re-use options and next steps to implement redevelopment.
