Mill & Main

A beautiful courtyard connects two buildings to create a unified campus in a highly prized location.

After a major tenant moved out of Maynard’s historic Clock Tower Place, the developer saw an opportunity to reinvigorate the mill building and create a new, 50-acre mixed-use development with over 1.1 million square feet of office, retail, and open space (and plans for future adjacent residential developments).

Far from its previous status as an out-of-mind water feature and some asphalt between buildings, Mill & Main was planned as a vibrant place where both people who work there and residents of Maynard and surrounding towns will be drawn in to enjoy themselves.

MPA’s master plan removed key outdated buildings to create green spaces and sight lines to the mill pond.

The plan envisioned boutique retail and galleries which would activate the pedestrian level. It was imagined that visitors could stroll across a scenic boardwalk to an artisan brewpub.
