July 24, 2020 - Retail

Newton, MA Mark Development selected Erland Construction and Form + Place, Inc. to renovate 8,200 s/f of commercial space for The Barn Family Shoe Store. This is Mark Development’s second project with Erland.

The Barn, a retail fixture since 1948, carries high-quality footwear and casual apparel for women, men, and children, has been named Best of Boston by Boston Magazine, and has won Wicked Local Media’s #1 Readers Choice Award. The Barn will be the first locally owned business with a lease at Washington Place.

The updated retail space will be outfitted with new flooring, lighting, millwork, interior storefront vestibules, and a VRF HVAC system. In keeping with and expanding upon the layout of the previous location, the new store will have two bathrooms, a kitchenette, back office, and extensive storage space. The interior will also be painted.

“We’re excited to have been selected to fit-out The Barn’s new space,” said Daryl Leland, special projects/strategic accounts group manager at Erland. “They’ve been a fixture in Newton since 1948. It’s pretty remarkable to be a part of their story and continued success.”

The new storefront will have an entrance on both Washington St. and Walnut St., provide parking for customers, and offer convenience and an improved shopping experience while continuing to contribute to the vitality of Newtonville.
