Noho Presses Reset On Roundhouse Lot

(Northampton, MA) — Northampton is pressing the reset button in its talks about a prominent downtown parcel owned by the city. The Roundhouse Lot at the rear of Pulaski Park was the subject of fiery controversy back when former mayor Clare Higgins tried to place a Hilton Garden Inn there. Now Mayor David Narkewicz says he wants to run an open process. Tuesday night at a public meeting, a design firm recommended housing for the parcel. Some people cautioned about moving too fast, saying the city should take a broader look at the site for its overall urban design potential.
