129 Parker Street Development Project

The former Digital Equipment Corporation complex at 129 Parker Street is being developed by Capital Group Properties under the working name “The Shoppes at Maynard Crossing”. This area is a repository of information about the project’s interactions with town government (various committees and departments).


Current Status

The project currently is in an “active” conceptual phase meaning that while an application has not been submitted, the town and the applicant are working on a development agreement, and any potential zoning amendments that may be necessary.  If and when this is completed, the project will be taken to the Planning Board for public hearing with a final stop at town meeting where a vote will be taken on all proposed changes and a concept plan.

The Board of Selectmen has agreed to residential development consisting of 175 one and two bedroom units. Of that number 17 will be designated as “affordable”.

Hawthorne Development presented a presentation for “Maynard Retirement Residence” (presentation below).  They have indicated strong interest in the site.

It is anticipated that the conceptual plan will be ready for the winter town meeting. As information is available the town will disseminate it as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your interest and we hope to have more updates in the coming weeks and months.
