Summit Montessori School Putting Pleasant Street Office Building on the Market
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Framingham, MA. (October 15, 2019) – Summit Montessori School is placing the property at 281 Pleasant Street on the market as part of its preparations for expanding the school’s campus and programs.
The building was originally custom built for a law office in 1978 and features large fluted columns at the main entrance that helps it adhere to the look and feel of the surrounding neighborhood of Pleasant Street and Mill Street. The property is listed with Cheryl Tully Stoll and Marlene Aron of Metrowest Commercial Real Estate for $649,900. The nearly 4,924 square foot, two-story building currently houses two different offices and offers a potential buyer many opportunities for commercial ventures.
Listing agent Tully Stoll said, “the building is well suited for a law firm, a technology company or any other type of business interested in a convenient and easily accessible location. It offers a large parking lot, generously-sized conference rooms, open areas and the potential for extra income from a second office unit with its own entrance.”
Summit Montessori Board Chair Kristina Davis shares, “Proceeds from the sale of the office building will enable us to expedite the first phase of our planned expansion, the addition of a toddler house.” The Framingham Planning Board recently approved the school’s plans to add a two-classroom toddler house in the first phase and a community space with a gymnasium and stage at a later time.
As its mission states, “Summit Montessori School is a community dedicated to developing respectful, self-motivated, life-long learners. Through a challenging, individualized, Montessori-based curriculum, children cultivate their strengths to reach their unique potential and to become active participants in the global community.” Founded in 1996, the “small by design” school encompasses six classrooms of learners from ages 18 months through twelve years. Its expansion project will allow the school to better serve the Metrowest community with increased capacity to offer the area’s youngest learners with quality Montessori educational opportunities.
