Trident Group Joins Tuscan Village Development Team

New Hampshire firm to lead management of $1b ‘work, live, stay, play’ project

SALEM, N.H. – Trident Project Advantage Group, one of the leading owner’s project management firms in New England, has joined the Tuscan Village team and will oversee the transformation of the 120-acre property into the region’s premier “work, live, stay, play” destination.

“Tuscan Village is going to be the gateway to New Hampshire and will be a vibrant and transformative new community,” Tuscan Brands founder Joe Faro said. “To accomplish this, we need the most dynamic and experienced professionals in the industry and adding Trident makes our team even stronger.”

Trident Project Advantage Group will work side-by-side with Faro as the Owner’s Project Manager and will be led by Gino Baroni, Trident’s founder and managing principal. Among Trident’s previous projects are Gillette Stadium; Boston’s Rowe’s Wharf; The Modern in West Palm Beach, Fla.; Terminal A at Logan International Airport; Museum Towers in Cambridge; Harvard Business School’s MacArthur Hall; Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge; The Boston Harbor Hotel; One Lincoln Street in Boston; the New England Aquarium West Wing Addition; and academic and residential buildings at Duke University, University of New Hampshire, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Harvard University.

Baroni, a graduate of MIT and Merrimack College, will work closely with Faro on all phases of Tuscan Village, including overall management of the project’s design, construction, permitting and cost/schedule management.

“Joe Faro has a sound vision for Tuscan Village and we are proud to be joining his impressive team,” Baroni said. “This development is extremely well positioned and presents tremendous economic, social and cultural opportunity for Salem and southern New Hampshire. We look forward to providing our proven owner’s project management services to Joe and his team to bring this new community to life.”

The first phase of Tuscan Village – a 50-acre site called North Village – is under construction and includes 250 housing units, a new Market Basket concept and a car dealership. Last month, it was announced that Massachusetts General Hospital and Catholic Medical Center have teamed up and are planning a 200,000-300,000 square foot medical center on the adjacent 120-acre parcel of Tuscan Village. A formal groundbreaking for the larger site is being planned.
