Plymouth: New medical building coming to Cordage Park

The Plymouth Planning Board has approved a realignment of the entrance to the Seaport at Cordage for a new medical office building to be constructed on the old Walmart site.

Joe Jannetty, of Janco Development, says the new two-story, 76,000 square foot building will be constructed for a specific user: “The Walmart is going to be razed and it will be a brand new two story building more centrally located within the site. It’s a first class medical office building, built for a user. It’s not a spec building for lease. It should be a great anchor to the front door of our project.”

Realignment of the entrance way is necessary to adapt to office use rather than the mixed residential and commercial use originally planned, but the boulevard feel will remain. Jannetty says: “We’re going to have a true boulevard with a double loaded drive and left-turn only lanes, bike lanes, pedestrian crossings, everything that was in the original boulevard. The fundamentals are there—it’s just the geometry has changed.”

The Board also approved the landscape plan for the proposed building. The preliminary site plan for the building was given approval by the Board last month.

The name of the company that will do business from the proposed building has not yet been revealed.
