The compounding pharmacy, owned and operated by Joe Lorello, Cassi Brooks and Stephen Drapeau, has moved from 84 Marginal Way down the street to Century Plaza, at 29 Marginal Way. The group bought Apothecary By Design's retail pharmacy in 2016, establishing an independent pharmacy and wellness center.
Other businesses that have located at Century Plaza since Northland acquired and redeveloped the property in 2015, are Chipotle Mexican Grill, T-Mobile and Orangetheory Fitness.
Coastal Pharmacy has leased a 2,900-square-foot space on the site, which also is accessed from Kennebec Street.
There are two remaining leasable spaces in the complex — 1,375 square feet between Coastal and T-Mobile, and 1,900 square feet in the second building, off Kennebec Street next to Orange Theory Fitness, according to Josh Benthien, a partner with Northland.
Along with the Century Tire site, Northland acquired 1 Marginal Way, 200 Kennebec St. and 202 Kennebec St. for redevelopment.
The first of those to be developed is the 1,700 square feet at 200 Kennebec St. Leavitt & Sons Deli, of Falmouth, opened its second location there at the end of last year.
The brick building, across Kennebec Street from Century Plaza, had most recently been used as a Century Tire warehouse. A lease agreement with deli owner Peter Leavitt, whose first location is at 37 Depot Road in Falmouth, on the corner of U.S. Route 1, in early 2017.
"The deli is really doing well, and I'm glad to see it," Benthien said. He said the addition of Leavitt & Sons advances Northland's effort to help the neighborhood and the city revitalize Bayside.
"The entire Bayside neighborhood is really coming along, and this is one more locally owned enterprise" he said. "As we looked for the right tenant, we felt that was an important factor for the character of the area. Leavitt's definitely adds some local charm."
He said that 2,000 square feet above Enterprise Rent-A-Car at adjacent 1 Marginal Way is also available.
He said that of the 12 leasable spaces Northland has, the two at Century Plaza and the second-floor space at 1 Marginal Way are the only ones unoccupied.
The Northland developments are part of a larger investment effort into the West Bayside neighborhood in the past few years.
