Merchants Row

Shopping Center

65,000 sq.ft

Opening Summer 2019

Hanover, MA

The center is situated on a 10 acre site off a high traffic corner with access to

Route 3, Route 53 and 123. Giglio Properties goal was to scrap an existing

65,000 sq.ft two story building and in it’s place introduce the 62,000 sq.ft single

story lifestyle center. The development will be a mix of retail, restaurants and

entertainment that is further enhanced by a variety of outdoor green space and

landscaping. At the core of the project is the promenade, the open space

between buildings A & B. It is intended to be part of the community for farm

stands, yoga classes and weekly venues that give the experience consumers

are seeking in their shopping centers. Studio TROIKA’s job was to help create a

unique set of buildings that capture the active nature of the center. The large

roofs on both A & B are broken by two canopies that architecturally highlight

the anchor restaurants, while also creating space below for seating. We chose

a simple pallet of materials such as EIFs, stone, wood and metal. Using them in

a complex way to transform an otherwise flat facade into a more dynamic

experience.
