Essex Street was once the finest street in Lawrence, now it is time to bring it back too life. The goal is to attract both national and local merchants with this building as the anchor; and moving forward with the larger plan of turning Lawrence into one of Massachusetts most successful cities
Lawrence, MA (PRWEB) August 14, 2007
Lawrence native Michael S. Tarshi, former star of Donald Trump's," The Apprentice 3 " and President of Tarshi Development has made quite a stir in both the real estate market and the local government with his plans of revitalizing the downtown Lawrence, MA area with the birth of his project, The Tarshi Building.
Tarshi is applying what he learned from Donald Trump and putting it on paper to watch it grow. Learning from America's number one real-estate mogul, Tarshi too is starting to build his own empire while giving back to the community he grew up in.
Michael S. Tarshi and the Tarshi family have invested tremendously through out the city of Lawrence. From developing neighborhoods to investing in commercial and residential buildings as well as owning several successful businesses, this ex-Apprentice and Boston College Graduate has put a tremendous amount of faith in the city. "The large investments my family has made in the city should exemplify that we believe in Lawrence and have never lost hope in the area."
"Essex Street was once the finest street in Lawrence, now it is time to bring it back too life. The goal is to attract both national and local merchants with this building as the anchor; and moving forward with the larger plan of turning Lawrence into one of Massachusetts most successful cities" says Tarshi.
Tarshi's new project in downtown Lawrence is a parcel of land on Essex Street that he has owned for some time. In cooperation with the city of Lawrence, Tarshi will be developing a 15,000 square ft. commercial property that will essentially be the benchmark of a much larger plan to re-develop and revitalize the Essex Street area. Tarshi will be a key part in revitalizing the downtown landscape, bring national companies back to Lawrence, generating new jobs and kick start the business buzz downtown.
Lawrence Mayor Michael J. Sullivan states, "The City of Lawrence appreciates the work that the Michael S. Tarshi and Tarshi family is doing in the downtown area. It's people like this that bring new business to our great city. The Tarshi Building is a key ingredient in the revitalization of Essex Street."
The Tarshi Building is in the planning stages and can be built to suit any prospective tenant. Tarshi Development is currently seeking out national tenants for building. The building is slated to be completed by 2008. Northern Essex Community College is scheduled to be built directly across the street from the Tarshi development.
The Tarshi family has been a part of the evolution of Lawrence since the 50's and Michael S. Tarshi wants to see the growing changes. The Tarshi Family is one of the largest holders of real estate on Essex St. and control the largest amount of frontage on this street. Michael's father, Attorney Michael J. Tarshi, has had businesses on Essex Street since 1958; the longest lasting business owner on the street.
Currently, Michael along with his brothers, Steven and John Tarshi are developing St. Augusta Landing, a 10 unit Townhouse development on Water Street in Lawrence as well as other projects in key gateway cities in the works.
