Forbes Crossing Underway


Entry from Route 140 and Foxborough Boulevard

Foxborough, MA -The Cranston, R. I.-based Saletin Real Estate Group (SREG) is redeveloping a 10-acre site at 369 Central Street in Foxborough that will be transformed into a new mixed-use development called Forbes Crossing.

Development will include the addition of three pad sites, over 46,000sf of retail space, and a 139-room Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Hotel.

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

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

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.


There has already been significant pre-leasing at Forbes Crossing and renovations of the existing retail building have commenced.

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

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.”

“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.”

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