The Market Place Plaza Project is located at the site of the former BAT Bus Terminal in downtown Brockton. After BAT relocated to its new Intermodal Transportation Center next to the MBTA’s Old Colony Commuter Rail Terminal the Market Place Plaza has become under utilized. Market Place Plaza’s location in the heart of downtown Brockton makes it an ideal public space. Utilizing Federal CDBG funding for streetscape improvements the BRA in conjunction with the Brockton Parking Authority and the City of Brockton is currently working to improve the Plaza. The BRA and the City are working with existing restaurants to create a space for outdoor seating in an effort to attract new businesses and more visitors to the downtown area.
