Swansea Mall Redevelopment Effort Update

The developers who currently own and are redeveloping the former Swansea Mall location are set to present a concept to the town’s Board of Selectmen next Thursday at 6:30 p.m that would integrate a Swansea Municipal Complex into the repurposing of the property. 


According to Swansea Selectman Chris Carreiro, since last Summer, the developers have been working to develop and construct a lifestyle center. 


The center will look to include office space, retail, medical locations, residential market rate apartments, state of the art storage facilities and even an area for municipal and government issues. 


In late 2018, Swansea failed to gain approval from town residents to build a new town hall. The proposal would have consolidated the original town hall offices with the annex building’s offices and combine it into one facility. That price tag would be nearly ten million dollars.  


Administrators in Swansea have been granted an additional six on-premise liquor licences for the redevelopment effort of the Swansea Mall as well as economic development along the Route 6 corridor.
