Concord’s Steeplegate Mall Demolition Update

Concord’s Steeplegate Mall Demolition Update
July 8, 2024

The next steps in Steeplegate Mall’s transition from pure retail to mixed use will come before two Concord boards this month, including whether to allow part of the building to be torn down.

A July 10 hearing has been scheduled by the city Zoning Board concerning a number of changes to town zoning that the mall’s owners, Onyx Partners, say are needed to make their proposal succeed, and a July 17 hearing is slated before the Planning Board to allow demolition of the building.

Details were not available at press time but Onyx Partners have said that three current mall tenants – JC Penney, Altitude Trampoline Park and The Zoo health club – have long-term leases and will remain even as everything else owned by Onyx, including the adjoining Regal Theater building, is removed.

The stand-alone TD Bank and Applebee’s restaurant alongside the mall will not be changed by the development.
