Maynard Power Center Lands Emerson Hospital Outpost as Tenant

Maynard Crossing, an in-development 730,000-square-foot retail plaza anchored by a Market Basket, will also contain an urgent care facility run by Concord’s Emerson Hospital.

Developer Capital Group Properties said Emerson Urgent Care would take a 5,000-square-foot pad building that will be constructed at the development’s entrance. The new Maynard location will offer walk-in care for immediate medical needs for people of all ages, related to common illnesses and injuries, as well as diagnostic tests on-site, including X-Ray, and lab work.

“Despite the unprecedented challenges over the past few months, we are now entering a new normal in which businesses are reopening and people are interacting, dining out and shopping once again,” Capital Group leasing manager James Vazza said in a statement. “Maynard Crossing transforms the old paradigm of retail by incorporating residential, grocery, dining, fitness and more into one self-contained, pedestrian friendly open-air lifestyle hub that caters to an emerging post-pandemic reality.”

Capital Group also announced two other tenants at the same time: Eco Nails & Spa, which will take 2,000 square feet of space, and Creative Gardens Early Education Center, which will take 8,000 square feet. All three tenants are slated to open in late 2020.

The development is being built in tandem with a 180-unit apartment complex developed by LeCesse Development and a 143-unit senior living facility developed by Hawthorn Retirement Group.

“Our leasing strategy is not for the normal five to 10-year lease. We do deals thinking long term for the next 25-plus years, and by integrating a mix of supportive uses, we create stability for the development with a built-in customer base to help tenants thrive while promoting economic development for the community as a whole, Vazza said.
