The Corcoran Sub-district is characterized by a mix of commercial and residential uses, and is complimented by the presence of public parks, an expanded public library, and a significant length of frontage along the Salisbury River, and proximity to public transportation. There is significant potential for residential redevelopment in the sub-district.
The sub-district includes several publicly-owned properties, some that are in use, and others that are underutilized. Sixty-one percent of the total land of the sub-district is publicly-owned, the highest percentage of public owned land of all the sub-districts. Fifteen of the 21 buildings in the Corcoran Sub-District were built in 1939 or earlier. The sub-district also has one building listed on the National Register of Historic Places, 43 Crescent Street. The building now serves as the Central Office Administration for the Brockton Public Schools.
