Winstanley Enterprises, re-developers of the plaza at what once was the Stop & Shop Plaza on Boston Road, provided two major announcements on Tuesday relating to the rebirth of what once was a major shopping center in the heart of town.

A contract was signed on Tuesday morning awarding renovation of the old Stop & Shop Plaza, now known as Chelmsford Town Center, to Pinnacle Construction of Tewksbury, with work to begin immediately. 

Construction was expected to begin on Nov. 15, but a small design delay related to the facade of the building pushed back finalization on the beginning of construction according to Adam Winstanley, founder of Winstanley Enterprises. 

Winstanley also announced lease agreements with two tenants: Choice Fitness and Nobo Modern Japanese and Bar. 

Choice Fitness will take up the 17,000 sq. ft flagship portion of the plaza closest to Summer Street, with Nobo occupying one of the two 5,000 sq. ft restaurant slots. 

Construction is expected to be concluded on July 24, 2014. 

Chelmsford Patch will have more information as it becomes available.

UPDATE: 12/11 - A third tenant, SportsClips Haircuts, has been announced.

I am not a happy camper given the other proposed tenants at that location. The Japanese restaurant is OK, I guess, but my experience with the one in Billerica (near Market Basket) left me forever in doubt. So, we get another sports joint and another hair place ... next will be a nail place I assume? Yuk!

Good News Everyone Today, yes Today of all days the start of a Blizzard the trailers are moving in, the port-a-potty's are in place and I would suspect construction to start taking shape very soon... Happy New Year and lets look at it from a different perspective instead of a negative one moving forward... All I read are negative comments because this does not work and that does not work. It will never be what everyone wants but lets face it nothing is the way everyone wants something to be. I live right around the corner literally and welcome these new business with open arms.. It could be much worse and stay vacant, we are very lucky businesses are willing to come to Chelmsford.. I have read many posts here and a majority of the posts are unwelcoming and very unfriendly so to start a new year lets be thankful and be positive.
