In Plymouth, Governor Charlie Baker does the honors, presiding over a groundbreaking ceremony for a 300-unit apartment complex at Cordage Park, soon to be known as Plymouth Station.

Harborwalk Apartments, is the first step of four, 4-story apartment buildings at Cordage, once home of the largest rope maker in the world, and once the largest employer in the Town of Plymouth.

Governor Charlie Baker led town officials in congratulating the co-developers, Joe Jannetty of Janco Development and Jim Goldenberg of the Cathartes Company.

The Governor noted the important role of MassWorks. The project got a kick-start, when the town received a $2 million dollar MassWorks grant to cover essential infrastructure improvements.

Jannetty emphasized that Harborwalk apartments will contain 25% affordable units. And, Goldenberg’s vision includes dogs, or rather tenants who own dogs, so the complex will include a do-it-yourself dog wash.

Selectman Chair Ken Tavares, a native of North Plymouth, introduced himself as the “kid who grew up here” and applauded the vision of Jannetty, in developing a mixed-use site that when complete, will include 23,000 square feet of retail development on Court Street.
