The Cranston, Rhode Island-based Saletin Real Estate Group is redeveloping a 10-acre site at 369 Central Street in Foxborough. The site will be transformed into a new mixed-use development called Forbes Crossing.

Development will include the addition of three pad sites, over 46,000 square feet of retail space, and a 139-room Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Hotel. There has already been significant pre-leasing at Forbes Crossing and renovations of the existing retail building have commenced. Saletin Real Estate Group is currently marketing for lease the few remaining opportunities to occupy available retail and restaurant space at the development.

Saletin Real Estate Group has also begun enhancing the visibility of the plaza from Route 140. Completed work includes tree clearing and visibility improvement which will increase interest in the plaza for both tenants and future customers. The Foxborough Conservation Commission and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation worked alongside Saletin to provide these improvements.

“Visibility is important for this plaza,” said Jeffrey Saletin, president of Saletin Real Estate Group. “Its location has the potential to attract activity in the area, and businesses will appreciate the increased visibility from a busy highway.”

The redevelopment site, a prime location on the Foxborough/Mansfield line, is within a few miles of world-class businesses and entertainment venues. Only 11 minutes from Gillette Stadium and 10 minutes from the Xfinity Center, Forbes Crossing will be located across from Cabot Business Park, one of the largest business parks in New England.

“Community members and local officials are looking forward to the increased economic activity that this plaza can add to the community,” said Saletin.

For help with the design, Saletin Real Estate Group has teamed up with DiPrete Engineering to complete land surveying and site engineering.

“Saletin Real Estate has proven to be an excellent leader on this project,” said Eric Prive, Project Manager at DiPrete.

DiPrete Engineering is leading the design team, which includes GZA GeoEnvironmental, Sage Environmental, Pare Corporation, Studio 401 Architecture, and Natural Resource Services, through the state and local permitting process.

“We are excited to be working on this project,” added Prive. “The addition of new retail and restaurant businesses in this area will continue to add to a thriving community.”
