Foxborough, Massachusetts

Development for the Kraft Group. The Kraft Group’s next frontier is Quarter Point at Patriot Place, a 1.5 million square foot development planned to house life science labs, commercial office space and some limited manufacturing. Keegan notes, “We think it’s going to be a gamechanger for both the Town and the Kraft Group in the sense that it’s actually going to start building upon the biotech vision that we both believe will take hold in this area.” Foxborough’s locale, coupled with the amenities offered at Patriot Place, make it an attractive destination for biotech and life science firms. “It opens the doors for workforce recruitment for those types of employees and tenants that want to see set up shop here,” Fire explains. “We have great vehicular access and we have a commuter rail station on the site that has recently been activated. The expectation is that this, along with available land and existing infrastructure, will help drive these major life science-based and commercial office tenants out to Foxborough. We have everything they will need at their doorstep and the tagline we like to use is ‘the best of the city, close to home.’” Situated equidistant from Boston and Providence, the Town of Foxborough is bordered by Interstate 95 and Route 495 on one side and is then bisected by State Routes 1 and 140 – making it an ideal location to live and do business. Keegan explains, “There are a lot of high-end residential homes in the community along with a great school system and the high quality of our municipal services has become a trademark of the community”.
