Nationwide developers are planning to create labor housing and retail space in a long vacant lot at the entrance to downtown Bucksport.

Wishrock Development, a Portland-based home developer, aims to build a complex with 18 apartments and two stores. Town-owned main street lot that hasn’t been used for about 9 years..

It’s still in the early stages of the process, and Wishrock hasn’t officially filed an application, but this is exactly what the town’s is doing to strengthen Backport’s growing downtown and add the urgently needed housing. This is the type of project that the officials were looking for. It is also one of the three apartment buildings under construction in Bucksport and can inject about 35 units into the community to help the town recover from the 2014 Verso paper mill closure.
