Mashpee Commons is currently engaged in negotiating a three-party development agreement with the Cape Cod Commission and the Town of Mashpee – the first of its kind on Cape Cod.
Discover the neighborhood plans, the project scope, as well as economic, environmental, tax, and traffic considerations being addressed in the negotiations.
The proposed project is a multiyear, phased expansion of residential and commercial offerings adjacent to the existing Mashpee Commons center, adding varied housing types, recreational amenities, walkable streets, parks and a trail system connecting the greenways of the Quashnet and Mashpee rivers.
Constructed in the vernacular of a New England town, future development would be consistent with the style of the existing Mashpee Commons community.

The project footprint includes the current development at Mashpee Commons and an additional approximately 120 acres of adjacent undeveloped land, extending east beyond Great Neck Road and west beyond Mashpee Public Library.
The existing Mashpee Commons development would serve as the core of the project, allowing for increased density and mixed-use buildings. Extending out from the core would be a transition area that would shift from a primarily mixed-use commercial center to the core area of primarily residential uses. The outermost – or edge – area of the planned expansion would be exclusively focused on residential development, with a wide-range of housing types.
The expansion plan also reflects Mashpee Commons’ commitment to public squares, pocket parks, civic spaces and walkable streets. The project would be designed to increase the walkability between the various areas of Mashpee Commons, nearby schools and the town’s natural resources.
The project will be phased over 25 years.
