Norfolk, MA – On September 7, public officials and community members participated in the official groundbreaking of Boyde’s Crossing, Norfolk’s historic new environmentally sensitive pocket community.
Located at 108 Main Street, the new community is one of the first pocket neighborhoods to emerge in the Boston area. These communities have been popular on the West Coast for the past decade, and the movement is gravitating to the East Coast.
Among the public officials to lend a hand at the official groundbreaking and ribbon cutting were Robert Bullock, Jr., building commissioner; State Representative Shawn Dooley; Scott Bugbee, selectman; State Senator Richard Ross; Scott LaMontagne, project manager; Danielle Rochefort, realtor, Berskshire Hathaway Page Realty; Bisher Hashem, general manager, Stonebridge Homes, Inc.; Eoghan Kelley, general manager, Stonebridge Homes, Inc.; Jack Hathaway, town administrator; and Ray Goff, town planner.
Boyde’s Crossing is a thoughtfully designed neighborhood of sustainable homes promoting a healthy, comfortable lifestyle and a strong sense of community. Its emphasis on environmental stewardship appeals to everyone from young professionals to empty nesters looking to reduce their carbon footprint while at the same time being part of a larger community.
The project is financed by Mechanics Cooperative Bank. Occupancy is scheduled for next spring.
