The Carlisle project consisted of three priority industrial brownfield sites: Masland/International Automotive Components (IAC), Carlisle Tire and Wheel, and the 759 Hamilton Street/former Tyco Electronics sites. The former IAC/Masland site was redeveloped to re-establish the street grid to reconnect the surrounding neighborhoods to historic Downtown Carlisle, new multi-family apartment buildings, a hotel, restaurant and high-end car condos. The former Carlisle Tire & Wheel site plan was built out to include a mix of townhomes, stacked flat apartments, small-scale commercial, a community center, a multi-generational play area and a large open greenspace through two phases. The former Tyco site was acquired and is being redeveloped into a mixed-use community with lodging, retail, food/beverage, professional office space and other amenities. The redevelopment project resulted in work force/job training, flood mitigation strategies including infrastructure improvements and an equitable development approach with strategies for mixed-use and mixed-income reinvestment.
