Shrewsbury was voted one of the top 15 places to live in MA. It offers a scenic small town life with easy access to jobs in Worcester and Boston. While property taxes have had some small increases, the town still has one of the lowest rates in the state. The town center is packed with shops and ethnically-diverse restaurants with changes it seems every year with the new stores.
For outdoor fun, there are 75 acres of recreation fields and fountains at Dean Park and crew regattas on Lake Quinsigamond.
For the last 50 years people have been going to "Spags" which was taken over by Grossman Development. It is quite an interesting place to visit. We finally have a Whole Foods in addition to Trader Joes and I understand the town is working on opening a Market Basket off of route 20. If you have never visited a market basket, find one.
A few of the new tenants at the plaza are Club Pilates, Atlantic Poké and SkinMD Laser & Cosmetic Group.
Club Pilates, headquartered in Irvine, California, will open in Lakeway Commons this summer. Owned by Michaela and Jeff Bruce, the Shrewsbury location will provide total body workouts aimed at improving flexibility, strength, balance and posture. Club Pilates Shrewsbury will offer classes that use a variety of equipment, including EXO chairs, TRX, springboard and barre.
“Lakeway Commons is the perfect place for a Club Pilates studio, alongside Whole Foods and other stores that focus on health and wellness,” owner Michaela Bruce said. “We are excited to open a Pilates studio in Shrewsbury to develop new jobs in Central Massachusetts focused on delivering a unique mind-body wellness experience.”
In a new food concept, local Shrewsbury resident Michael Tomaiolo is opening Atlantic Poké, a “sushi-in-a-bowl” restaurant, by July 1. The restaurant will boast responsible, sustainably sourced food with all natural, non-GMO proteins and customized, house-made sauces. All plastics used at Atlantic Poké will be biodegradable. I have been there and it was definitely worth mention. Small tables but definitely take out. The addition of Burton's and Tavern in the Square has been totally enjoyable. Gluten Free at Burtons menu and the Fish and Chips at the Tavern (potato chip crust) is worth a mention.
The 375,000-square-foot mixed-use development, which is anchored by a 50,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market, includes 100,000 square feet of retail, 250 apartments and 14 townhouses, according to GDG.
