Cochecho Waterfront Development: Dover

This is a multi-phase project that will occur over several years involving a mixed use development of multiple stories with an architectural character and quality to conform to the appearance of surrounding downtown Dover buildings. The site consists of a 29-acre parcel with over a half mile of frontage along the Cochecho River on its westerly and northerly boundary with approximately 14.5 acres suitable for development. To the south is a residential neighborhood and Henry Law Park, to the east is Maglaras Park, and frontage on the Cochecho River. The project involves several key elements including shoreland blended with a city park and boat house, and a combination of residential and commercial properties intended to create an attractive neighborhood and park space. Project design considerations include naturalized shoreline and park space and developed areas planning for 2100 projections for sea level rise and the resultant 100-year floodplain.
