According to research conducted by Regnante, Sterio & Osborne LLP, the United States government obtained the Tarrant Lane property by eminent domain in the 1950s for use as a United States Army NIKE base. It was later used as housing for United States Coast Guard officers.
Tarrant Lane is a 3.75-acre area located in the northwest section of Wakefield near the Reading town line. It contains an existing residential development of twelve single-family homes previously used by the United States military. In 2017, DB5 Development Group purchased the property from the U.S. Coast Guard. On October 10, 2018, DB5 Development submitted an application to the Wakefield Board of Appeals to construct development on the property.
