The Greenhound Project
In 2008, ReMain purchased the former Island Spirits property at 10/12 Washington Street to support public transportation initiatives. Our goal was to give the community the time and opportunity to study the best use of this area and experiment with the use of the site as a future transportation hub. We updated the interior of the property using simple green building practices, and partnered with the Nantucket Regional Transportation Authority (NRTA) and The Wave to enable a portion of the property to serve as a downtown bus stop from late June through Labor Day with public restrooms and free Wi-Fi access. In 2010, the property was included by the Town in the Wilkes Square planning exercise, the final report for which is posted on the Town’s website, and by the ULI in their advisory panel’s discussion of possible re-development of that area of downtown.
