23 December, New Bedford MA – Shoreline is owned by New Bedford’s Quinn family, which operates 12 scallop boats, as well as a chandlery (Standard Marine Outfitters), and East Coast Fabrication, a commercial vessel repair facility that has outgrown its current location. Shoreline intends to commence site preparation activities in the next several months. The 12.5-acre site borders the existing New Bedford rail yard to the north, near the end of the New Bedford Subdivision.
The site is at the crux of New Bedford’s two major infrastructure improvements: The Phase 5 harbor dredging project, which will remove PCBs and revitalize the site’s waterfront, and the Wamsutta terminus of the MassDOT South Coast Rail project, which will significantly expand rail access to the site.
Shoreline acquired the Revere site for $50,000 in July of this year. The manufacturing facility closed in 2007.
Shoreline is staking a 58.5% match to the IRAP award; total project cost is $1,042,000.
