Going to work is easy when it's at The Downs. With an Innovation District and a dynamic Town Center, The Downs is creating Maine's newest economic hub and over 3000 new jobs. With direct access within The Downs and easy access from I‑95 and US Route 1, you'll spend much less time commuting and more time living.
Innovation District is Maine's first new mixed-use industrial park in 25 years. The 154-acre specially zoned business park is ideal for light industrial, manufacturing, tech, commercial, medical, and retail users. Abutting Payne Road, Innovation District is comprised of 54 flexible lots that will accommodate 5,000 to 100,000 sq. ft. end users and 3 commercial gateway sites. With 55 acres of open space, there'll be plenty of room for work breaks.
The Town Center will be the heart and soul of The Downs and the broader Scarborough community. Designed for businesses of all sizes, build‑to‑suit lease opportunities for a variety of commercial uses will be available in both standalone and mixed‑use buildings. A mobility hub will connect the community to Portland and Southern Maine and a Village Green will host a farmers market and events for all ages.
Construction will begin in 2020 for the Town Center's first two tenants! Edge Sports Group, a state‑of‑the‑art sports complex with indoor/outdoor turf fields, hockey rink, swimming pool, walking track and gymnasium will be the heartbeat of the community. Portland based WEX will build a 200,000 sq. ft. $50 million operations center for up to 1,200 employees. The groundbreakings for these two dynamic companies will serve as the catalyst for the overall construction of the Town Center.
