TFMoran engineers worked with Interchange Development, LLC to design and permit Merchants Way, a 200,000sf multi-phase mixed-use development on Whitney Road at I 93 Exit 17. The 43-acre site is one of the largest recent commercial developments in central New Hampshire. TFMoran’s services included master planning, civil/site engineering, traffic engineering, permitting, and landscape architecture.
Phase One included an 80,775sf Market Basket store with an attached 22,000sf retail space, and a new state-of-the-art 12,000sf New Hampshire Liquor and Wine Outlet. It also included the existing Dunkin Donuts and Mobil / Xtramart stores. Two new roundabouts were designed (by others) as part of the project: a two-lane roundabout at Hoit Road (Route 4) and Whitney Road, and a roundabout at the site entrance on Whitney Road. Other stores included in this phase include Homegoods and a standalone Wendy’s Restaurant.
Phase Two consists of seven more pad sites for retail shops, restaurants, a bank, medical offices, and a wireless communications facility. Construction is slated to begin shortly on two sites set to be a Service Credit Union and Jersey Mike’s restaurant.
The third phase introduces a new industrial parcel to accommodate a 45-60,000sf distribution/ warehouse/ manufacturing facility. The parcels would all be served by city sewer and water.
