FALMOUTH — Town councilors on Monday were generally enthusiastic about a massive mixed-use development being proposed by the new owners of the Falmouth Shopping Center.
But they also made clear that public input will play a large role in how the project, called Falmouth Center, moves forward.
Council Chairman Caleb Hemphill promised “a very robust (public) process.”
The goal, according to Jonathan Cohen, who is partnering with Joseph Solely on the project, is to expand the current shopping plaza by adding amenities including a hotel, sports complex, housing, offices and more.
Cohen and Soley are proposing a master plan that would create more than 400,000 square feet of new development on about 40 acres along Route 1 near Bucknam Road. Cohen has declined to discuss the cost of the project, which would be built in phases over seven years.
Specifics about possible future tenants are not available, but the Seacoast United Sports Club, which now operates in Topsham and Brewer, announced June 1 that it would move into the new complex.
