Projects in Permitting
Tihonet Mixed–Use Development
In partnership with Southcoast Health System, the A.D. Makepeace Company broke ground last spring for the first building in the building in the Rosebrook Business Park. The medical office building, totaling some 65,000 square feet, will offer a variety of medical specialty services for local residents. Click here for more information.
In 2003, Wareham Town Meeting voted overwhelmingly in favor of creating a Business Development Overlay District in the area west of Tihonet Road. The A.D. Makepeace Company is now in the process of filing paperwork that will start the state permitting process for a portion of the Business Development Overlay District.
The Business Development Overlay District is part of a 6,000-acre contiguous parcel owned by the A.D. Makepeace Company in Wareham, Plymouth, and Carver. The development is subject to a “special review procedure” established by the state Secretary of Environmental Affairs. This procedure assures that local residents and town officials have adequate opportunity to review and comment on the development of the Tihonet Technology Park, as well as future development plans for this large parcel.
The company chose to focus on this portion of our property because it is the one element where (a) market conditions warrant development and (b) local approval for necessary zoning changes has already been approved. It is clear, from the two Town Meeting votes over three years, that the commercial component of our development enjoys widespread support from local residents.
The plans are detailed in the Expanded Environmental Notification Form, available through the links below.
