WHAT: The Project Development Team of Chelmsford Town Center are ready to begin the next phase of construction at the soon-to-be rejuvenated shopping center in downtown Chelmsford.
As demolition crews begin to focus on removing the exterior façade of the former Stop & Shop and Marshall’s plaza on Boston Road, anticipation continues to build for the overhaul of this site as well as the master plan recently unveiled for Chelmsford Village.
Having just completed the interior demolition of the plaza, crews will now start to remove the exterior façade of the building and continue to transform the facility into prime retail space. The new exterior of the building will feature a fresh modern look highlighted by a brick façade, a clock tower, all new storefronts, wide sidewalks to accommodate patio dining, retail friendly landscaping and other ornamental features that will make the new retail space a downtown destination.
Several tenants recently signed leases at Chelmsford Town Center including Choice Fitness, an anchor tenant that will occupy 17,000 square feet of space and NOBO Modern Japanese & Bar. Current tenants on the 8.5-acre property include CVS, Bank of America and Friendly’s. Prime retail space is available and is being exclusively marketed by Blackline Retail Group. Chelmsford Town Center will be managed by Winstanley Enterprises.
The transformation of the plaza, scheduled to be completed by the end of July, comes on the heels of a master plan that was recently unveiled by the Chelmsford Village Master Plan Committee as well the recent approval by the House of Representatives for $5 million for improvements to the town’s center. The master plan seeks to capitalize on Beaver Brook by creating a walkway for patrons and visitors of downtown and also seeks to make the downtown area more user-friendly by improving parking and walking areas.
Chelmsford Town Center is a retail plaza located on Boston Road / Route 4 at the intersection of Summer Street off of I-495. Winstanley Enterprises purchased the property about six months ago and vowed to overhaul the shopping center and rejuvenate the downtown location. Winstanley Enterprises, based in Concord, MA, has a proven history as a leader in the real estate and development business.
