Plymouth: Medical building project moving ahead in Cordage Park

The Plymouth Board of Selectmen held their meeting this week in North Plymouth at the Loring Center and learned that the long vacant Walmart Building at Cordage Park is closer to being torn down.

Bill Rudolph, the Property Manager at the Cordage Commerce Center, gave the Board an update on the seventy-thousand square foot medical office building to be built on the Walmart parcel. A company specializing in medical office building development will build for a specific user. The process is moving forward and a closing is expected in the next few months, then the old Walmart can be demolished.

“There’s a waiting for a closing on the front part—there’s going to be a medical center—and at that point we are obligated to rip down the Walmart building and to build a new boulevard.”

Three of the old Cordage factory buildings have been razed and the Cordage group was cited for salvaging much of the old building materials for reuse:

“We were the subject of a trade magazine on demolition that they were able to reuse a very high percentage –like 98% of the material, either for furniture or flooring, and the other wood projects that weren’t so good, they were sold as bio-fuel for creating electricity.”

Selectmen will meet next Tuesday night at town hall.
