Marketplace at Augusta looking to diversify uses
Maine's largest open-air mall is trying to diversify its uses.
The Marketplace at Augusta partner and founder is asking the city to change zoning laws so they can add more tenants.
The main restrictions they're looking to lift would allow warehousing, incubator space, and breweries.
Currently the Marketplace is home to many national retailers, shops, and restaurants but is always looking to grow.
"The market is changing and growing all the time, and we're trying to adapt to demands," says Roger Pomerleau, partner and founder of the Marketplace at Augusta. "We're trying to just have that flexibility to accommodate the new businesses that come to us."
Pomerleau says he's optimistic about the zoning change and thinks it will get done in a matter of months.
