The Derby Street Shoppes Hingham, MA
Derby Street Shoppes
The emergence of lifestyle centers as community gathering places has created the opportunity to transition aging malls and plazas to lively retail centers. The Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham exemplify this trend through the replacement of a dated shopping plaza with a 435,000-sf village-style complex. BSC’s integrated team provided civil engineering, permitting and survey services to support the transformation of the 42-acre site, located in the southeast corner of Route 3 and Route 228, to an attractive, high-end facility. Key issues addressed included maintaining shopping plaza operations, managing storm and waste water, and meeting permitting and documentation requirements.
