This week the rehabilitation of the building at 90 Washington Street is getting underway, as the owner's contractor begins to mobilize at the location. When complete, the building will hold the City of #SalemMA department offices currently located at 120 Washington Street. The project also calls for the refurbishment of the street-level retail storefronts and the creation of one additional new storefront. The Red Lion Smoke Shop and Koto Restaurant will remain open during this project, through its completion in early 2018.

One of the first visible elements of the redevelopment will be the erection of scaffolding on the Washington Street elevation of the building over the sidewalk. This will allow the contractor to begin improvements to the facade of the building and also ensure the safety of the public through the completion of exterior work in the Fall of 2017. Four parking spaces on Washington Street in front of the building will be cordoned off during the stay of the scaffolding.

These exterior improvements include refurbished street-level retail storefronts, new windows, and re-pointing of the masonry facade. At the same time, though not visible from the outside, interior renovations will be moving ahead, including build-out of new public meeting rooms on the ground floor level and City departmental offices and conference rooms on the upper floors.

Updates from the Salem Cable Project:

With only a small amount of perimeter fence left to install at the Canal Street Substation, contractors onsite are moving into the final phase of upgrades planned for the substation. As previously mentioned, only a few open action items remain. Those items include new landscaping design, the introduction of additional plantings, security lighting adjustments, and final paving.

As always, if you have any questions about any of the ongoing substation work, feel free to be in touch via our toll-free hotline at 844-SALEM-CABLE or through the "Contact Us" feature on our website at
