Lakeway Commons

Shrewsbury, MA

Program

Redevelopment of 103,000 SF former Spags site to create new lifestyle center with retail, dining and entertainment options and parking for 450 cars.

Solution

Lakeway Commons is part of a 23-acre mixed-use development located on the former site of Spags & Building 19, a cherished and now defunct local discount store. The Commons offers 103,000 SF of retail, dining and entertainment venues, complementing parallel development of rental apartments and town homes.

Lakeway Commons has been designed to create the feeling of a village center with six buildings of varying scale, materials and massing. Anchored by a 50,000 SF Whole Foods market, this mixed-use lifestyle center offers a wide range of options for shopping, dining and entertainment in a pedestrian-friendly setting. The residential and retail will be connected by wide, tree-lined sidewalks lined with outdoor cafes and public seating where people can come to see and be seen. An area of the site will be dedicated to the memory of former site owner Anthony “Spag” Borgatti.
