109 Main Street in Gorham, Maine
The building is 11,100 SF and replaces the vacant dilapidated old gas station structure that existed in its place for over 15 years. This building location is highly visible from all angles at the prominent intersection of Main Street and New Portland Road in Gorham, Maine. Great Falls constructed the new building and four interior tenant fit-ups for Subway, Aroma Joes, 9 Round Fitness and Nail Xperts. Site work includes ample parking and drive through windows for Aroma Joes.
The Cookie Jar in South Portland, Maine
The Cookie Jar is a Maine institution best known for its delicious pastry treats on Shore Road in South Portland. After hearing of the treacherous storm that ripped the roof off of the Cookie Jar and the struggles to repair and reopen, Great Falls jumped in to assist. The family run business was a natural fit that aligned with Great Falls’ commitment to constructing with a purpose. The Cookie Jar reopened on May 27th, 2010. There is a long history to the Cookie Jar and we are happy to have helped it get back up and running and look forward to watching all of its continued success.
