City selling piece of downtown

Salem: Half-acre parcel appears earmarked for developer


The Peabody Essex Museum’s expansion a decade ago was made possible when the City Council voted to give up part of a downtown street.

The proposals for Parcel B — if there are more than one — must include a number of details, including price, the development plan, anticipated tax revenue, architectural design and project financing.

Proposals are due by June 3. A pre-proposal conference is set for May 16 to answer questions from potential developers.
