Cummings building at 215 Canal St., will feature Harpoon Brewery, Union Coffee, Barre Life and Wicked Joyful (A pop-culture shop).

Union Coffee, a specialty coffee roaster, and Barre Life, a fitness studio will occupy the ground floor with outdoor dining and recreation areas for their customers. Harpoon Brewery will occupy 12,000sf of the second story with an outdoor beer garden called “The Quad,” which will take place of West Central Street. This part of the project consists of redesigning the former street with retaining walls and greenery to create an outdoor space for the community.  Eventually, the space will be used to hold art shows, farmers markets, and other outdoor events.

TFMoran is providing civil/site engineering and land surveying services for the project, working closely with Lauer Architects and owners York Real Estate.
