NEW BEDFORD — The old Wicks & Licks building is down and HiFive is ready to go up. The medical-use only cannabis shop has taken a step closer to start building.

Beacon Compassion Inc. submitted plans to the New Bedford Planning Board for HiFive, a 4,300-square-foot shop with 22 parking spaces that will be located in the site of the former Wicks and Licks building at 366 Hathaway Road.

After Planning Board approval, the building was demolished in November.  

Peter D’Agostino, a consultant for Beacon Compassion, said the HiFive shop will be for medical-use only, however there are plans to sell recreational products in the future.

In January 2020, the City Council voted to approve an amendment to Beacon Compassion’s Host Community Agreement, which would permit the sale of adult-use or recreational products in addition to medical products.

Beacon Compassion has three other locations: Framingham and West Roxbury, and a cultivator and manufacturer site in Attleboro.

Final approvals to start building

On Dec. 15, D’Agostino and his team, which included civil engineer Tony Capachietti and traffic engineer Dan Mills, presented an updated proposal to the Planning Board.
