SWANSEA, Mass. (WPRI) — A developer is moving forward with plans to transform the Swansea Mall into a multi-purpose complex.
Swansea Selectman Christopher Carreiro posted rendered photos of what the property is expected to look like on his Facebook page Wednesday.
“I’m so excited about this plan right now. Finally, we can get a glimpse into what’s going to happen here at the Swansea Mall site.” said Carreiro in an interview Thursday.
Brady Sullivan Properties, based out of Manchester, New Hampshire purchased the 84-acre property at 262 Swansea Mall Drive.
According to its website, Brady Sullivan plans on turning the mall into apartment complexes, a roughly 90,000 square foot storage facility, along with 500,000 square feet of commercial office and retail space.
Selectman Carreiro said, “If this all works out perfectly, if all the pieces of the puzzle fit together, this means that the town of Swansea will probably have its most robust economic development project its ever seen.”
Walmart is currently the only store still open at the Swansea Mall.
As of Thursday afternoon, the renovations were in the planning stages.
Brady Sullivan Properties told Eyewitness News, it expects the project to come together fairly quickly, however, it can’t specify a timeline yet.
