SHREWSBURY – A collision and match-up heart and Flooring & Decor is formally coming to Shrewsbury.

For the duration of the Preparing Board assembly on Jan. 5, the board accredited the website options for the design of a McGovern Automobile Team collision and in shape-up centre and Flooring & Decor at 420 Boston Turnpike. 

“This job is a large transformation of this site. Prior to McGovern Automobile Team acquiring it, the property was mainly structurally unsound, in essence falling aside, and it was hundreds of thousands of pounds delinquent in taxes,” Town Supervisor Kevin Mizikar reported. 

The heart will fit lights and facilities onto vehicles these kinds of as police automobiles and fireplace trucks. The collision heart would also company McGovern’s community dealerships, like the Autobahn United states and McGovern Buick GMC dealerships in Westborough and the Audi and BMW dealerships in Shrewsbury.

The site beforehand served as a manufacturing facility for lots of years and was used to host flea markets.

Throughout a earlier Select Board conference, McGovern attorney Richard Ricker explained a single of the structures on the web site was condemned and three hearth chiefs have informed him the website housed “the most hazardous structures they knew of.”

Preparing Board Chair Steven Boulay termed the current structures on the site “unsightly” and the new growth will “dramatically” make improvements to Route 9. 

In September 2021, McGovern bought the 15.4-acre residence. Then in February, McGovern presented their designs for the website to the Select Board. 

More than the summer time, the developers reported the collision and in good shape-up middle would also include a retail middle. In September, the developers introduced the revised options to the Scheduling Board, which includes a 65,300-sq.-foot Flooring & Decor. 

More than the earlier several months, motorists on Route 9 have observed drastic changes to the internet site as crews demolished the buildings.
