Additionally, Brockton life-sciences land use study results will be highlighted in a presentation prepared by Innes Associates. “The Lovett Brook area is located at the intersection of Routes 24 and 27 in northwest Brockton. The site is anchored by the Good Samaritan Medical Center and includes the headquarters of Harbor One Bank and the Original Tommy Doyle’s Pub and Grill. Lovett Brook bisects the site, which contains a broad mix of office, retail, residential, and auto-oriented uses. Oak Street and North Pearl Street are lined with active businesses, although one is located directly over the brook. However, the interior of the site on the west side contains a single house, a small strip mall, and the concrete pad and parking lot of a former movie theater (closed in 1999, demolished in 2015).” Learn more about the study.
