Good news for one Claremont business on Maple Avenue as they’ve had their expansion plan approved unanimously. National Field Representatives was given approval by the city’s Planning Board Monday night to expand their location at 158 Maple Avenue with a new 20,000 square foot building.
The Valley News reports that the two story addition will be located on the western side of the one story 15,000 square foot building and will cost around $5.5 million, with a project end date of next July. NFR’s president told the board that they hope to consolidate their three offices into the new building as to increase efficiency.
Earlier this summer, NFR knocked down the closed Gary’s Claremont Tire Company building, which made room for a new parking lot.
Not very long after, they also knocked down the adjacent and vacant Claremont Savings Bank building, which they had previously purchased, giving them full control over the building’s fate. The demolition made room for the new expansion, which will be supported by 200 parking spots on the main site and 70 across the road.
NFR is a mortgage servicing company that employs around 200 workers locally.
