Arlington Neighborhood Commercial Façade

& Storefront Improvement Program
Methuen, Massachusetts





Existing Conditions Segment Map

The City of Methuen retained Thomas Mayo Associates to provide architectural design services for a number of commercial building storefront and façade improvement projects with Methuen’s Arlington Neighborhood.  The projects were selected by the City for funding through its Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Commercial Rehabilitation Program.


An existing conditions survey and analysis was conducted for each project addressing all components of the building façade, including historical elements, inappropriate modifications, and deteriorated elements.  Based on the analysis, design sketches for improvements were produced together with preliminary cost estimates.


Based on the owner’s selection, final design drawings were completed, along with refined cost estimate, and submitted to the City for production of working specifications.  The program provided loans to commercial shop owners for improvement to their properties in an attempt to reverse the trend of blight within this area of Methuen.
