Third Street ballast

Side streets can add an important dimension to a downtown’s allure, providing more options to explore within a few blocks’ stroll. Most of Dover’s pedestrian attraction has been along Central Avenue, but the new Orpheum is adding muscle to the Washington Street intersection at Lower Square.

Three blocks to the north, just off Upper Square, this complex is filling in a former parking lot beside the railroad tracks, with the potential of doubling the retail appeal for strollers on the block of Third Street.

Angling the residential units above avoids creating a canyon effect on the street.
