Newington, CT – Grossman Development Group (GDG), in partnership with Callahan, Inc. and Long Wharf Capital, has launched construction at Meadow Commons, a 24-acre mixed-use destination in Newington. Washington Trust is supplying the debt for the retail portion of the development.

In addition to 78,000sf of retail, the site includes 269 units of new luxury housing directly accessible to Berlin Turnpike. Anchored by a new national grocer, the property will deliver several retail and restaurant concepts to the area. Other confirmed retail leases include Sally’s aPizza, Shake Shack, Crumbl, and PJ’s Coffee.

“Meadow Commons is a reflection of our overall strategy to focus on experiential and essential retail, curating the best of local dining and services with coveted national brands in a grocery-anchored setting,” said Jeremy Grossman, principal of Grossman Development Group. “This is a prime site combining new housing with fresh retail concepts to create synergies and a fantastic consumer experience.”

The development is located 15 minutes from downtown Hartford via the Berlin Turnpike and eight minutes from Interstate 91. The housing, under development by Criterion Development, will feature a fitness center, indoor garden, and clubhouse. The first retail location is expected to open late summer of 2023.
