Located in Downtown Chicopee, Fruit Fair started in 1936 as a local farmstand and has since grown into a brick and mortar grocery store. Just before the COVID-19 pandemic, Sam and Jared Newell purchased Fruit Fair and not only revamped a stagnant corner of Chicopee Center, but provided quality food and essential products to what would otherwise be a food desert.
Sam and Jared are on mission to continue to provide for their community with locally grown produce – right from their rooftop greenhouse! JDA has joined Sam and Jared in their venture, researching the right greenhouse options, planning for optimal circulation from planting to harvest and preparing plans and technical drawings for this innovative addition.
103 Lyman St
JDA has teamed up with Open Square Realty in a plan to add residential space to Holyoke’s downtown.
Open Square Realty has invested in 103 Lyman St, an abandoned tenement building across from Open Square, and plans to restore this fire-damaged, long-abandoned housing resource for the City of Holyoke. After a fire, this building’s top story was removed and work remains to be done to give it new life. JDA is excited to be part of the revitalization of downtown Holyoke.
The Holyoke YMCA was in need of detailed drawings of the entire building. JDA conducted thorough site measurements and drafted plans and elevations.
