West Falmouth Crossing was originally envisioned as Maine’s first transit-oriented development. However, lead developer Richard Berman was at least a decade ahead of the curve and what the town requested in return was a larger scale commercial development. However, this is not your typical sprawl by the highway exit: it was developed in accordance with groundbreaking design guidelines and features internal walking trails.
West Falmouth Crossing includes a mix of large and small-scale neighborhood retail businesses along with office space. A Hannaford grocery store and retail complex occupies the eastern half of the site, and an office building for TD Bank anchors the site west of Gray Road. The site also includes vital neighborhood commercial services, including banks, convenience stores, medical offices and a daycare facility.
In the process of planning the development, neighbors from the town of Falmouth emphasized a desire to preserve open space on the site and the development includes forty acres of preserved forest land and riparian habitat on the site along the Presumpscot River.
West Falmouth Crossing is located at the northern terminus of a METRO bus line, and adjacent to a planned passenger rail line that could someday offer commuter rail service between Falmouth and downtown Portland.
