North Main Street
For decades, Lincoln Square has been viewed as one of the City’s grand public places, boasting some of the City’s most significant buildings and transportation corridors. The area is a cultural center (home of the Worcester Art Museum, the Worcester War Memorial Auditorium, an academic center (Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences’ Borysek Living and Learning Center and the Lincoln Square Academic and Student Center, and nearby Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Becker College ), a law and order center (including the former Worcester County Courthouse and the headquarters of the Worcester Police Department), and a business center (Gateway Park). As the area continues to evolve, the City of Worcester looks to explore the opportunities for reuse of existing buildings and parcels and the infrastructure changes necessary to prepare the area for the expanding economy.
The North Main Economic Development Strategy builds upon the cooperation and coordination of local, state, and federal officials, and most importantly the input of the local community members. The report can be found below.
