Developer Edward Murphy
Worcester’s Canal District has the reputation of being a place where people go to party. At least one developer is trying to bring a bit of class to busy neighborhood.
Edward Murphy is behind the revitalization of three key properties on Water Street, the old Bucky’s Garage, on 56 Water St., Widoff’s Bakery on 129 Water St., and the former Perfect Game building, on 64 Water St. He’s brought the popular Queen’s Cup bakery from Millbury to the Canal District, and is working on building 16 one-bedroom luxury apartments in the Perfect Game building. Most recently, Murphy found a tenant for the long-empty Widoff’s Bakery building, a Brazilian kickboxing studio. These projects combined make Murphy a formidable force in the Canal District, and someone to watch during the Worcester Renaissance.

Owner of Milford's Depot Street Tavern to open 'Maddi's Cookery and TapHouse,' a neighborhood pub in Worcester's Canal District
After renovations, Hicks said Maddi's will have an industrial feel with salvaged lights, custom wooden tables and a concrete bar.
The building is owned by Worcester developer Ed Murphy. Upstairs, there are 16 resident units. The restaurant will expand across the Water Street side of the building.
The opposite side has two units, one of which will be occupied by a hair salon.
Called Pageboy Hair Studio Inc., the salon will have six stations and feature an industrial-style design with concrete floors, Murphy said.
"I think it will become a destination spot where people want to go," Murphy said of the building. "He's going to bring people from his Milford location who want to come out and try this which brings new people to the Canal District."
