The SSEDC’s Housing Committee supports the overall Cordage Park project in Plymouth (675 new homes at full build out). The project sits adjacent to the Cordage Commerce Center Campus – with restaurants, bars and other activities. The project will part of a larger development focused on revitalizing an underutilized lot – The Cordage Rope Factory. It offers front door access to the Plymouth MBTA Commuter Rail Station.This is an example of housing anchoring a mixed-use project that will have economic impact beyond its boundaries. We expect the successful development of Cordage will trigger significant new investment in the larger North Plymouth Center, with retail, commercial development and more housing. It also is likely to spur more commercial development over the town line in Kingston.
