129 Parker Street Development Project



The 58 acre 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.”

The project includes:

  • a 68,000 square foot supermarket
  • a congregate care retirement community (143 units)
  • residential uses (180 units with 22 dedicated affordable)
  • health club
  • medical offices
  • retail uses and restaurants

The site development is controlled locally by three key instruments:

  1. The Town’s Zoning By-laws. The property zoning designation is “Neighborhood Business Overlay District” (NBOD).
  2. The Memorandum of Agreement between the Town and the developer.
  3. The Concept Plan and Signage Plan approved by Town Meeting on Oct 5, 2016.

All phases of the project development must be consistent with these three documents.


Current Status

The project was approved by the Planning Board on August 16, 2017 and the Zoning Board of Appeals on August 7, 2017.
