Moving Forward With You

The Dascomb Road Project is going ahead with a Commercial and Retail mixed-use development. We are asking you to make it better by voting to include a 55+ community at the Special Town Meeting on January 29th.

A residential component will:

  • Reduce traffic by more than 25%
  • Provide much needed housing for 55+ residents
  • Attract premium restaurants & retailers
  • Stimulate new revenue & economic development 
  • Increase green space & decrease parking

    What's changed about the                        project since last Spring?

    55+ Senior Housing Only:  We now propose 100% age-restricted 55+ housing to eliminate the concern surrounding the impact of school aged children on Andover Public Schools.

    Planned Unit Development: We will be submitting a detailed Planned Unit Development (PUD) which will allow for targeted zoning regulations that are site specific. read more here

    Scaled Down Development: The existing permitting allows for 800,000 SF of development on this parcel. Due to your concerns regarding density, we've scaled the project back to less than 600,000 SF.


      The Project

      Centered around lush public green space, The Dascomb Road Project will be the towns first community-oriented lifestyle center consisting of under 600,000 square feet of mixed-use space, with potential for a luxurious fifty-five plus community. The DRP will combine the latest innovations in business, the most coveted names in retail and fine dining, along with high-end office, medical and exciting plans for a boutique hotel. Be a part of something unique, be a part of something inspiring, be a part of The Dascomb Road Project.
