HAVERHILL — New England construction management firm, Dellbrook|JKS, joined The Procopio Companies, MassWorks, MDM Transportation Consultants, Cube 3 Architecture, Senator Barry Finegold, and Mayor James J. Fiorentini, along with other city officials, on December 5th, 2023, to celebrate the commencement of construction on The Beck, a new mixed-use multifamily project, and the Elm Street intersection improvement plan. Both projects serve to transform an underutilized space and improve living in the area.

Situated at 39 Railroad Ave, The Beck Project is breathing life into a vacant factory site along the Merrimack River. This transit-oriented development, spanning 266,449 sqft., neighbors the Bradford Commuter Rail Station, offering residents convenient access to Boston.

Plans for the five-story waterfront structure include wood-and-steel frame over podium construction and the creation of 347 parking spaces, catering to residents and visitors alike. The mixed community seamlessly integrates residential and commercial spaces, with 7,587 sqft. of ground-floor restaurant space, featuring a terrace overlooking river views and 1,126 sqft. of retail space positioned beneath 290 market-rate apartments.

Other amenities of The Beck include a riverside boardwalk leading to a pocket park at the development’s west end and a full-size park to the east, including and amphitheater, playground, dog park and walking paths interconnected to the City’s riverwalk loop.

Al Nassar, Senior Superintendent at Dellbrook|JKS, expressed pride in the partnership with The Procopio Companies, stating, "Dellbrook|JKS is a proud partner with The Procopio Companies, and we’re excited to be collaborating with its team again for The Beck. This property has played several roles in the Haverhill community, and we look forward to revitalizing this space into a place the city can enjoy once more."

Since beginning the project’s foundations in June, Dellbrook|JKS and its partners have finished over four stories of wood frame construction on The Beck's first half. The Beck is scheduled to open in the summer of 2025 and marks the third collaboration between Dellbrook|JKS and The Procopio Companies, following the successful completion of Mosaic and Caldwell in Lynn.
