Urban Land Institute Appoints Skip Spriggs as Chief Strategy Officer
201 Canal is a new-construction project in Lowell, Massachusetts’ Hamilton Canal Innovation District that includes 125 units of mixed-income housing and 5,000 square feet of commercial space. The site is transit-oriented and is a half-mile walk from the intermodal Charles A. Gallagher Transit Terminal. It was also built to meet high standards for energy efficiency and is certified by Enterprise Green Communities and Energy Star Homes. 201 Canal was designed with inviting indoor and outdoor amenity spaces to suit the post-COVID demands for outdoor space, the ability to work from home comfortably, and a sense of belonging to a community. Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase either downtown Lowell, the canal, or the courtyard. Indoor features include a state-of-the-art fitness facility, a yoga/spin room, a tasting kitchen, a communal dining table, club seats, an open-air atrium club room with lots of natural light and a 17-foot artificial tree, and a coffee bar to help residents live healthy and satisfying lives. The first level features two private offices for tenants who work from home, a VIP lounge, a package handling system with an Amazon locker, wiring for future cold storage, and an Amazon locker. There is a canal-level patio with uplighting, planters, café seating, and views of the flowing Pawtucket Canal. In addition, there is a 1,000-square-foot rooftop deck, a fenced-in outdoor dog park, an outdoor kitchen, a media wall, and various communal areas.
