WOBURN, MA– MobilityWorks®, the nation’s largest retailer of wheelchair-accessible vans, has leased a 10,000-square-foot space in Woburn with Cummings Properties for its newest dealership. The showroom is expected to open later this month at 299 Washington Street.
MobilityWorks sells new and pre-owned vans that are modified for wheelchair accessibility, and provides rental vans and adaptive equipment such as hand controls, rotating seats, and scooter lifts.
“Woburn is at the nexus of Routes 95/128, Route 93, and Route 3; it’s a very accessible area and ideal for business,” said Roger Brown, general manager at MobilityWorks.
The Washington Street dealership will be the third that MobilityWorks has opened in Massachusetts, with others in North Attleboro and Norwood.
“MobilityWorks required a first-class dealership location that can be easily accessed by its clientele,” said Cummings Properties senior leasing director Rob Yacobian, who worked on the transaction with Tyler Ewing, managing director of Newmark Knight Frank’s Boston office. “We were able to design, permit, and construct the showroom and service center in an expansive, well-lit property that will allow the company to showcase its vehicles.”
According to Yacobian, the Woburn location includes design details like four-foot-wide doorways and durable epoxy-coated floors, making the dealership easily navigable for clients.
“The Washington Street showroom is exceptional,” Brown said. “We have 72 sites around the country, and this is one of the best. The Cummings design team really collaborated with us and put a lot of thought into how to develop the space with our clients in mind.”
