Accessibility, Affordability, & Variety

When it comes to accessibility, both highly desirable communities are accessible via I-495 and I-93 and State Routes 28, 133 and 125. Additionally, Andover is part of the MBTA’s Greater Boston commuter rail system with multiple stations throughout the community. North Andover is a short drive to the MBTA commuter rail lines in Andover and Lawrence.

Both Andover and North Andover have a rich history and offer a variety of commercial properties from office parks and industrial properties to classic New England main streets for retail, office and mixed-use purposes.

Each community offers affordable properties for investments and expanding or relocating one’s business to the area. The area includes restored mills, historic architecture, new construction and in rare cases, select land for development.

Both communities are committed to development, including investing in infrastructure to attract businesses to the area. North Andover is home to the largest Amazon fulfillment center in the state.

A Rich History

Settled in 1646, the two towns were originally one community. In 1855 there was a formal split and the community divided based on the church communities of the time. The original North Parish community became known as North Andover and the South Parish members became residents of Andover. It was a farming community in the early days.

As the Industrial Revolution took hold, entrepreneurs harnessed the power of the Merrimack and Shawsheen Rivers to open woolen mills that processed wool from locally raised sheep. Later, cotton mills and a rubber mill were added to the mix of mill works that were dotted throughout both communities. The mills provided a significant amount of the communities’ employment for more than two centuries. The last mill closed in 1981.

Over the years, the mill buildings have been restored and repurposed for commercial, industrial and mixed-use purposes. The once-thriving mills now provide vibrant areas for business, commerce and retail. In addition to mills, Andover and North Andover offer businesses and investors great opportunities in existing office parks, office buildings and commercial and industrial space.

A Diverse and Skilled Workforce

Lawrence, MA Workforce
The two communities grew and thrived over the centuries. The original settlers arrived from England not long after the Pilgrims and established the settlement. In the late 18th century, immigrants began arriving from Scotland, Ireland and Germany to work in the mills – as they did in many parts of New England. In the early 20th century, Armenian and eastern European immigrants arrived. After World War II, as the mills slowly began to close, technology companies moved in to replace them, drawing immigrants from Asia. Both communities have thriving Merchants’ Associations that support local business and connect businesses to the communities.

The Greater Boston area is a mecca for education and the same is true in these two communities with internationally renowned Philips Andover and its beautiful campus in downtown Andover, the Brooks School in North Andover and Merrimack College, in North Andover, one of the fastest growing colleges in the nation. Merrimack has a strong relationship with the community, producing highly educated students ready for internships and recruiting.
