There wasn't a thread to cover the various projects outside the Boston Metro...most of which have been covered on ArchBoston. But I never got around to creating a thread.

WORCESTER – The city is looking to build what would be the largest landfill solar project in the state – an 8.16-megawatt solar photovoltaic array on the 26-acre top plateau of the former Greenwood Street municipal landfill.

According to a filing with the state Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, the system being planned calls for the installation of 29,128 solar panels, each one measuring 5.5 feet by 3.3 feet.

The panels would be mounted at a fixed 25-degree angle facing south, and the rows of racks that the panels would be mounted on would be spaced about 14 feet apart, to reduce shadow impacts and allow for maintenance of the system.

The system is being designed, permitted and constructed by Borrego Solar Systems Inc., which is headquartered in San Diego and also has an office in Boston.

Mixed-use planned for former Diamond Chevrolet lot in Worcester
By Michael D. Kane | [email protected] on June 12, 2015 at 5:56 PM

WORCESTER -- Where once they used to sell cars, they might be selling lattes. The former home of Diamond Chevrolet at 520 Park Avenue is being considered for a mixed-use residential and retail development. This, according to Neil Treitman, who is working with the owner of the property, David "Duddie" Massad to find retailers interested in the location.

Massad relocated the Diamond Chevrolet dealership to Auburn in 2010. Other operations closed in 2012, according to the Telegram & Gazette.

A sign was put in the lot announcing a proposed "Park Avenue Center." That sign, Treitman said, was installed to generate discussion about what can and should go on the site.

"We have no timeline today, and our plans are conceptual," Treitman said. "Duddie Massad expressed his interest in seeing something happen that would spur the regeneration of Park Avenue.

Treitman said one idea could be restaurants and stores on the ground floor, with three floors of apartments.
