Forbes Crossing Construction Continues: Tenants Get Ready to Open
FOXBOROUGH, MASS. – Construction is near completion of the first pad site at Forbes Crossing with its two tenants – Starbucks Coffee and Moe’s Southwestern Grill – readying to open soon. Saletin Real Estate Group, developer, construction and property manager of the newly redeveloped mixed use center located on Route 140 in Foxborough,Mass., has been managing the construction, marketing, and leasing of the project. Formerly under the name Foxfield Plaza, the new Forbes Crossing includes 61,000 sq. ft. of retail space, a 139-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton, and three pad sites with two of them currently available for lease.
As construction manager, Saletin’s vice president of construction and management, Peter Dyer, has held a key onsite role in overseeing the work done on a daily basis, managing multiple contractors and subcontractors, as well as working with town and state officials, and the various utility companies. “We are getting near the end of the first phase of the redevelopment,” said Dyer, “We have completed the installation of all new underground utilities, storm water basins, site grading, most of the paving of the parking areas, and the installation of new LED site lighting. Construction of the buildings continues to be on schedule.” Presently, the new exterior of the strip has been completed and new signage has been installed on the exterior. Two new pylon signs were installed in July and a third pylon sign on Central Street will be installed soon.
In addition to the pad site opening, Fit Factory is expected to open its 26,500 sq. ft.fitness facility later this year. The four-story Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton will open in the first quarter of 2018. “We did everything we could to minimize disruption to our existing tenants who were open throughout the construction. They are excited about the changes to the center, as is the community," said Cris Crecelius, vice president of acquisitions and leasing, "No doubt, it will be bustling.” Located right off of Interstate 95, Forbes Crossing sits on 1.6 acres and is close to Cabot Business Park and Foxborough Business Park. This is Saletin Real Estate Group’s latest construction management project in its portfolio of work.
