The Massachusetts State Lottery’s North Shore Operations Center and Retail Prize Claim Center will be moving into adjoining spaces at the Stadium Plaza shopping center in Lawrence in 2021.
The Mass Lottery has agreed to 10-year leases for each of the two spaces with ACS Development Corporation, owner of the Stadium Plaza property located at 160 Winthrop Avenue in Lawrence, near the intersection of routes 114 and 495.
The sites were determined to offer the best value among all accepted applicants that submitted proposals during a mandatory public bidding process conducted by the Mass Lottery and the Massachusetts Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM).
“This important investment by the Lottery and the Commonwealth in this lease is another great addition to the renewal of this gateway business district,” said City of Lawrence Mayor and Chief Executive Officer Daniel Rivera.
“Thanks to Executive Director [Michael] Sweeney, Treasurer [Deborah] Goldberg and all involved in seeing Lawrence as we do, a great place to work. The City and the residents appreciate it.”
Earlier this fall, the five-member Massachusetts State Lottery Commission unanimously authorized Lottery representatives to enter into negotiations with the property owner.
Currently, the Lottery’s North Shore Operations Center and Prize Claim Center are located in Woburn on Cummings Park Drive.
Operational functions at the Lawrence location will service Lottery agents located throughout the North Shore region. At the Retail Prize Claim Center, customers will be able to claim prizes up to $100,000 and purchase Lottery products.
All prizes over $100,000 must be claimed at the Lottery’s headquarters at 150 Mount Vernon Street in Dorchester. ###
